Chateau Mouton Rothschild Antoni Tapies

Antoni Tapies

Lithographs in colours, 1997, on Arches paper, signed in the stone by the individual artist and by Phillipe de Rothschild. Around the image and  text is an indented section made by a machine. The image by Niki de Saint Phalle depicts a merry scene with different inanimate elements interacting with each other.

Note : To commemorate the Allied victory in 1945, Baron Phillipe de Rothschild had  the idea of embellishing the Mouton Rothschild label with art. Each year a  famous painter was asked to produce a design for a label and this custom  lasted from 1945 until today.  The label design was incorporated into a poster  to advertise the wine and this is an example of one of these attractive and well  made pieces - on quality thick paper. 

Amongst the more famous “labels”  and posters were:

1947 :Jean Cocteau ; 1955 : George Braque ; 1956 : Salvador Dali ; 1967: Cesar ; 1970 : Marc Chagall ; 1972 : Serge Polliakoff

1974 : Robert Motherwell ; 1980 : Arman ; 1990 : Francis Bacon ; 1948 : Marie Laurencin ; 1964 : Henry Moore

1969 : Joan Miro ; 1971 : Kandinski ; 1973 : Pablo Picasso ; 1975: Andy Warhol ; 1988 : Keith Haring ; 1989: Die Mauer

1993: Balthus ; 1994 : Karrel Appel ; 1995: Antoni Tapies ; 1998: Rufino Tamayo ; 2004 HRH The Prince of Wales

2006: Lucien Freud ; 2009: Anish Kapoor ; 2010: Jeff Koons

Since 1946 only 4 vintages out of the 60 have departed from the tradition.

In 1981 Baroness Philippine de Rothschild collated all the original works which had been made by the world famous artists into individual  framed exhibition cases and arranged a travelling exhibition of these: since that time the show has been to many famous museums throughout the world: It began in Canada, In Japan in 1982 and later the United States (21 Cities), England, Scotland, Germany, Belgium, Hong Kong, China and Russia.
