Additional Details: Jacques Monory’s 1981 poster for the Roland Garros tournament is a significant piece in the series of artist-designed posters that began that year. Monory, a prominent French painter associated with the Narrative Figuration movement, is known for his cinematic and often surreal imagery, characterized by the use of monochrome and intense primary colors. The poster is numbered out of 150 and signed in crayon, adding a unique touch that enhances its value and authenticity for collectors. Monory’s poster for the 1981 Roland Garros tournament prominently features the three primary colors—red, blue, and yellow—applied vigorously from top to bottom. This choice of colors creates a visually striking effect, emphasizing the vibrancy and energy of the French Open. The bold use of primary colors also reflects Monory’s characteristic style, which often includes high-contrast and saturated hues to evoke strong visual and emotional responses​
