Big-O posters were UK style commercial posters that were created by some of the best artists of the day. Martin Sharp was one of the major contributors to the series. This GOLD FOIL MASTERPIECE is one of the most popular and sought after Bob Dylan posters ever created! It is also a favorite of everyone here at PAE.

According to the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian design museum: “For this poster featuring Bob Dylan, Sharp drew inspiration from the musician’s signature curly hair. Radiating circular motifs imitate the curls and also borrow from [German renaissance artist] Albrecht Dürer’s woodcut. Just above Dylan’s forehead and scattered throughout, Sharp inserts the knot patterns that Dürer created in the early 16th century.”

Martin Sharp posters always enjoy top demand in any condition, and this incredible piece of art rendered on gold foil is no exception! If you like your posters to exhibit FULL psychedelia, then this is one lot you should not pass up. This is a STUNNING EXAMPLE in great condition! We previously auctioned another example in much lesser condition for $2040.
