Freie Universität, Berlin April 1958 concert poster (Michel+Kieser)
Original first printing concert poster advertising jazz giants Ella Fitzgerald and Oscar Peterson at the Freie Universität in Berlin [Germany] on Friday, 18th April, 1958, presented by Norman Granz in association with Wolfgang Jänicke. Striking artwork by noted German graphic duo, Hans Michel and Günther Kieser, with the artists’ imprint to the upper left side border.
The poster has been restored by a professional paper conservator. It has been beautifully backed with Japanese tissue and is ready to frame. It measures 85.3 x 59.5 cm and is printed in blue and black inks on thin, uncoated paper stock. A significant and highly collectible piece of original late 1950’s European jazz concert memorabilia.
