Product story

This poster, featuring the striking The Sword Swallower, 1947 by Henri Matisse (1869-1954) still feels hugely contemporary and is a seductive suggestion of what the exhibition of French Graphic Art in 1975 contained.

The Royal Academy has published many of our most popular and varied posters from a rich collection as we celebrate our 250th birthday.
