This lithographic poster representing Anemones, was reproduced by Charles Sorlier in 1990 under the supervision of French artist Bernard Buffet as an Homage to Fernand Mourlot who had been an early supporter. It was created two years after the death of Mourlot to commemorate his contribution to the Arts. This poster is a variation in colour of an original lithograph signed and numbered in an edition of 150. The black and white lithographic plate was created by the artist and the colour variation by the master printer.

Flowers, along with clowns and and landscapes, were some of Buffet’s favourite subjects. Buffet was quoted as saying: “I want you to have a dialogue with my paintings by pure affection. Painting is not something to talk about or to analyse; it is something just to feel. A hundredth of a second is enough to judge a painting.”
