Paul (1892) Colin Auction Price Results

Who is Paul (1892) Colin?
Paul Colin (27 June 1892 in Nancy, France – 18 June 1985 in Nogent-sur-Marne) was one of France’s greatest poster artists.

Made famous in 1925 by his poster for the Revue Nègre, which helped to launch the career of Josephine Baker (who became his mistress), he worked for over forty years in the theatre, creating not only posters but also numerous sets and costumes.

Very Art déco at the outset, (his Le Tumulte noir is a masterpiece of the genre), his style quickly became highly personal and impossible to categorize: the synthetic accuracy of his portraits, the evocative force of his posters for grand causes so marked him as a master of visual communication that his work today remains relevant and fresh. A student of Eugène Vallin and of Victor Prouvé, he is considered a master of the modern school of poster art. He is the author of more thab 1,400 posters and many theatrical set and costume designs. His work was also part of the painting event in the art competition at the 1948 Summer Olympics.[1]

He was the master of painter Philippe Derome and poster artists duo Lefor-Openo

An original vintage poster of singer and Broadway star Adelaide Hall by Paul Colin advertising Blackbirds at the Moulin Rouge in 1929, sold on 2 October 2003 at Swann Auction Galleries in New York for $167,500.[2] The sale signalled a record high for an original Paul Colin poster.

"Faced with competition from the airlines, Paul Colin extols the steamship voyages for the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique, the 'French Line,' emphasizing the well-being, luxury and sense of adventure that you can experience on a transatlantic liner" (Colin p. 132).

In the post-war years he designed three posters for the French shipping company (the others in 1952 and 1955). Weallans p. 179, Paul Colin 101, Colin 187, La Mer p. 248.

Auction Date: Aug 05, 2021

Description:
PAUL COLIN (1892-1986)

TABARIN. 1928.


23 1/2x15 1/4 inches, 57x38 3/4 cm.
Condition B+: small repaired tears, replaced losses and restoration at edges; faded.

The Bal Tabarin, a popular night club in Montmartre, was opened in 1904 by Auguste Bosc, a composer of some renown in Paris during the "gay nineties." The club made its reputation with the Belle Époque favorite, the cancan, continuing to perform it long after the First World War, when the craze had all but died elsewhere. In the mid-20s two retired dancers infused the club with new life by introducing the Charleston. The passage of time and the changing trends are all illustrated in a spectacular manner here, with three different women dancing three separate dances all melded into one image. One element is clear among all the different characters in this poster - each is exposing enough skin to tantalize the viewer to attend an event there. This is one of the most sophisticated compositions Colin designed, infused with incredible movements of the various arms and legs, and containing different layers, combining three images into one. Using only three colors, Colin pays a flamboyant tribute to the art of dancing and has created a classic image reflecting the energy of Paris during the Jazz Age. This is the smaller format.

Dunham was likely inspired by the Revue Nègre of 1920s Paris, and developed a fresher and more disciplined performance group out of this tradition. Colin would go on to do all of her posters.

Original Vintage Poster for Zenith Watch Company by Paul Colin c1950

Lot 230: Original Vintage Poster for Zenith Watch Company by Paul Colin c1950

Auction Date: Jun 15, 2021

Estimate: $800 - $1,200

Description: Zenith Watch Company traces its history to 1843, making it one of the oldest Swiss watch manufacturers. Zenith is best known for the high beat El Primero movement - revolutionary when first created, and still powering some of the finest watches ever produced. Zenith has received over 1500 first prizes from observatories for the precision of its timepieces. The poster was created in the 1950's by the noted French artist, Paul Colin (1892-1985). Made famous in 1925 by his poster for the Revue Negre, which helped to launch the career of Josephine Baker (who became his mistress), Paul Colin worked for over forty years in the theatre, creating not only posters but also numerous sets and costumes. Very Art deco at the outset, (his Le Tumulte noir is a masterpiece of the genre), his style quickly became highly personal and impossible to categorize: the synthetic accuracy of his portraits, the evocative force of his posters for grand causes so marked him as a master of visual communication that his work today remains relevant and fresh. A student of Eugene Vallin and of Victor Prouve, he is considered a master of the modern school of poster art. He is the author of over 1400 posters and many theatrical sets and costume designs. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters....
