DESCRIPTION AND CONDITION
DESCRIPTION

A scarce and very collectable authentic ANTI APARTHEID POSTER dating from 1983. The poster depicts a black hand behind a prison door with a key and symbolises the quest for the liberation from enslavement of the South African Blacks through apartheid. The wording on the poster is APARTHEID IS UGLY and the poster was designed by the renowned French artist PAUL REBEYROLLE (1926 - 2005) for the UNITED NATIONS SPECIAL COMMITTEE AGAINST APARTHEID eleven years before the Democratic elections in South Africa of 1994.

The poster was produced through the lithographic process, is quite large and measures 840 x 590 mm. It shows the reproduced signature of the artist, his printed name, the emblem of the United Nations and the wording 'In Co - Operation with the United Nations Special Committee Against Apartheid' (In French and English). It has been laminated and block framed on hardboard of 1 cm thick with black protection on the edges, The item, as it is sold here, is shown above and 5 further images below describe it in more detail.

PROVENANCE

This is a nice authentic item with an interesting provenance. It came from the SOUTH AFRICAN DEMOCRACY EDUCATION TRUST (an organisation which, inter alia, studies the opposition to apartheid during the struggle years and collects material relating to the Anti - apartheid struggle). The rubber stamp of SADET appears on the back of the item 3 times and this is nice and irrefutable authentication of the item.

CONDITIONThe framed poster is in very good condition with a minor scratch and a very small nick to the lamination and the poster.
NOTES
This is something special for the collector of Anti - Apartheid memorabilia. Nice authentic items from the struggle period are hard to come by (just note how little of it is available for sale on the internet) and are constantly increasing in value. If you collect anti - apartheid material and do not have this poster - go for it, you may not find another one. If this item interests you, please Google it on the internet for more detail and if you have any questions about it, please ask them through the facility provided for that in this listing.
