JACQUES DE LA VILLEGLE, 1972, ripped poster on canvas
The nouveau réalisme was a French artistic movement which developed during the American pop art period. The artist tears posters off the walls, in order to create art selected from the streets of Paris. Avenue Victoria was the name of the street where this affichiste artist found the material for his work and made it his own copyrighted creation. The uncovered, ripped fragments of ordinary messages are the indelible reflections of an era.
