After Pieter De Hooch.
Psychedelic poster, 1967, designed by Victor Moscoso.
From the THINGS THAT HAVE INTERESTED ME collection of books and decorative arts in my shop. Victor Moscoso designed the poster incorporating a doorway detail from Pieter De Hooch's painting, The Courtyard of a House in Delft, 1658 . for THE DOOR'S series of concerts at the Matrix at The Fillmore, San Francisco. It is a contemplative domestic doorway scene for which the early Netherlandish painter was famous. I am thrilled to offer the poster for sale in my shop. Please see the links to both artists for a greater appreciation of the poster. And if you don't know who the Doors were please click here for that link. $950.
