Poster L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, by Night


The Posthumous Masterpiece for Your Own Poster Collection


It took 60 years to realize the vision of the cloaked Arc de Triomphe, and for 16 short days (Saturday, September 18 to Sunday, October 3, 2021) that vision became a sensual reality. Our poster, featuring an image by the longtime Christo photographer Wolfgang Volz, is more than a great souvenir: It allows you to take home and cherish this fleeting moment.
