Olympic Games/ Marathon/ / Gébé/ Reiser/ Decoration. Two original posters signed, please, Reiser (1941-1983) and Gébé (1929-2004) for Claude Confortes' galloping play "Le Marathon...". (with Ducasse, Rimbaud and Nerval as marathon runners). The genius of these two artists is such that the 1973 play is only the pretext for two great creations on the mythical race of the Olympic Games. Whether we like it or not, the marathon only pulsates during the Games; all other marathons are transitional races. And here we have all the soul of the Olympic marathon, the fusion with the road, and the breathlessness of the tongue-twister (hello Zatopek)... Louys, Théato, Mimoun or El Ouafi are not far away. 77x57. Light framing for presentation. With Reiser, in the margin, traces of moisture, and small tear.
