An iconic original bullfighting poster for an event that took place in Barcelona in the ‘Plaza de Toros Monumental’ on Thursday 26th May 1955.

Entitled ‘Grandiosa Novillada’ the event was hosted by the company of Pedro Balañá Espinós and boasted such toreros as: ‘Manolo Espinosa, Joaquin Bernardo and Antonio Borrero ‘Chamaco.’

Published by Ortega of Valencia, after a design by the renowned artist Jose Reus, the lithograph portrays a picador impaling a charging bull.

The condition of the poster is largely good, having been backed with card and protected by cellophane. There is, however, a tear halfway down the left-side.
