Niki DE SAINT PHALLE - Cou Cou Philippine

Niki de Saint Phalle (1930 - 2002)

Title : Cou Cou Philippine (s.8194) (2uf)
Medium: Lithograph in colours, 1997, on Arches paper, signed in the stone by the artist and by Phillipe de Rothschild. Around the image and text is an indented section made by a machine. The image by Niki de Saint Phalle depicts a merry scene with different inanimate elements interacting with each other.
Note : To commemorate the Allied victory in 1945, Baron Phillipe de Rothschild had the idea of embellishing the Mouton Rothschild label with art. Each year a famous painter was asked to produce a design for a label and this custom lasted from 1945 until today. The label design was incorporated into a poster to advertise the wine and this is an example of one of these attractive and well made pieces - on quality thick paper. Amongst the more famous “labels” and posters were:
1947 :Jean Cocteau
1955 : George Braque
195 6 : Salvador Dali
1967: Cesar

Since 1946 only 4 vintages out of the 60 have departed from the tradition.
