One of Gruau’s most popular images, ‘Rouge et Noir’ is often reproduced in poster form or small format print. This is the full-sized original work and what a spectacular statement it makes! Gruau’s trademark bold and sweeping brushstoke effects combined with colors so intensive the image is almost 3 dimensional. On very thick and heavy Arches paper with the publisher’s embossing lower left, marked ‘© 1990 Rene Gruau’ au verso, signed in pencil lower right and the edition number ‘99/300’ in pencil lower left.
