Bullfighting is a traditional event in Spain that features a charging bull and a well-dressed matador. Historically, the bullfight was the main spectator sport in Spain with a large number of famous matadors reigning as national heroes. Many of those who visit Spain make it a point to see at least one bullfight fiesta during their stay. This particular image was created by the artist, J Reus, and it colorfully depicts a golden-clad matador taunting a large bull by the waving a bright pink cape.

The text at the bottom portion of the poster reads "Espagne - Courses De Taureaux" which is French for "Spain - Bullfighting". There are many versions of this poster that feature the same central image, but use different text in an effort to garner visitors to the European country.

The artist J. Reus is known to have created many other posters depicting bullfights but little is known about him.

This is an Original Vintage Poster. It is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed and in excellent condition.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
