Collection of Mexican Tennis Posters and Placards, 1948-1956
Mexico, 1950s. Seven (7) posters, including five richly inked silkscreens and two vividly colored lithographs printed on a variety of materials ranging from thin commercial poster paper to heavy cardboard stock. Condition varies from near fine to about good ; one item only with small marginal losses. [1013]An exceptional collection of Mexican graphic art related to professional tennis competitions and youth clubs. The items are rare survivals of unknown designs for which we can find no contemporary auction records or catalog descriptions, presumably having been produced in relatively small quantities (especially the intricate and multi-layered silkscreens.) The works are unattributed. Acquired via the rare book trade in Mexico City, our source tells us the items likely comprised part of the reference collection of a poster printing and advertising shop in Mexico City that closed in the late 1970s, for which no trade name is recorded.
