About this Item

Bull with bull fighter poster by famed Spanish artist Manolo Prieto. Prieto [1912 - 1991] was a Spanish painter and graphic designer. His work includes advertising for Iberia Airlines, novel covers (Edgar Rice Burroughs and many others) but his best known work is Toro de Osborne which has become an iconic symbol for the people of Spain. Against a gold background a brown bull with white/red/black banderillas at his shoulder faces the bull fighter. Bull fighter wears green chaquetilla adorned with gold flowers and white/red detail. The red muleta or cape the matador is holding is the backdrop for the text: 'Gran Corrida Extraordinaria de Beneficencia' in black. At the bottom another original poster is added with details of the bullfight (black text on gold): 'Plaza de Toros de Madrid. El.
