Amazing piece of ephemera. For wine (and art collectors) around the world - this is a one-of-a-kind must have. This beautiful print shows Bernard Séjourné's trio of masks rising from the dark in their “white negritude” for the label of Mouton Rothschild 1986. It is one of the finest examples of his work. It is framed and in very good condition and is, exceptionally inscribed to John (Jack) A. Powers (former President of McCann-Erickson in Europe and America, and later Chairman and COO of Heublein, Inc., now Diageo and a major art collector), by the legendary Philippine de Rothschild. Baroness Philippine de Rothschild was the owner of the French winery Château Mouton Rothschild. She was the only daughter of the vintner Baron Philippe de Rothschild, a member of the Rothschild banking dynasty.
Signature: Signed and inscribed on front “To John A. Powers, Chairman, To my dear Jack, with undying friendship and admiration… to you and Eileen, Philippine de Rothschild.”
