This poster, published in Paris, was produced for a 1978 exhibition of the prints of contemporary artist Claude Weisbuch. This example is rare and unusual in that it is signed by the artist and inscribed to David Barnett, one of his most significant US dealers. It features one of the artist's haunting prints that is at once a self-portrait and also one of his iconic homages to the self portraits of Rembrandt van Rijn. Such images being featured on the publicity material for the exhibition demonstrates Weisbuch's devotion to the old masters while also comparing his own genius to theirs. The text of the poster reads:
