    Description

    Zou-Zou (Corona, 1934). Fine+ on Linen. Pre-War Belgian (24" X 33.5").
    Josephine Baker was born into an underprivileged family and began dancing on the streets for nickels and dimes. She eventually made her way to Paris, France. Her first job in Paris was in "La Revue Negre." Her next significant job was at the Folies Bergere, where she was a member of the club's all-black revue. It was there, in 1925, at age 19 that she first performed her famous "banana dance." She quickly became a favorite of the French, and her fame grew, but she had many ups and downs during her career. This wonderful and rare poster from the star's first film appearance is a first time offer by Heritage and a poster we've never seen previously. This professionally restored poster once showed slight fold wear, small tears, and a few chips. There is an unaddressed ink censorship stamp in the top left background and the side borders were once trimmed, barely extending into the edges of the printing. The imprint area and borders have been airbrushed, and there is a tax stamp and printing in the imprint area.
