After Pieter De Hooch. 

Psychedelic poster, 1967, designed by Victor Moscoso.

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.
