Poster, Nude Nude Totally Nude, 1996
This is a Poster. It was designed by Paula Scher and made for (as the client) New York Public Theater. It is dated 1996 and we acquired it in 1997. Its medium is offset lithograph on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
In this theater poster, two startling eyes fill the width of the page. Printed in red, the eyes force the rest of the face to recede into the background. Scher uses scale and color to amplify the poster’s arresting gaze.
