Poster, Préparation du Repas (Meal Preparation), 1972

This is a Poster. It is dated 1972 and we acquired it in 2009. Its medium is screenprint on wove paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Widmer, a Swiss-born designer, trained at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Zürich and launched his career in France in 1953. He founded Visuel Design in 1970 with his wife, Nicole. His exhibition posters for the Centre de création industrielle pair Helvetica typography with abstracted graphic forms depicting industrial design objects. Gradients and soft edges bring warmth and humor to these modernist masterworks.

This object was donated by Marc Benda. It is credited Gift of Sara and Marc Benda.
