About The Poster:

This is an exhibition poster featuring work by Isis Kischka. It was created and printed in 1960 for the exhibition titled "Peintures recentes" held at the Galerie 65 Cannes in Cannes, France.

According to information gathered after research was done on the artist:

"Isis Kischka was born in Paris on the 26 October 1908 to a Jewish family who had migrated from Ukraine two years earlier. After completing studies in commerce, he became interested in painting and became an artist in 1926, working first as a designer of medals. He married in 1932 and three years later began to study at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. His main sources of inspiration were Van Gogh and Cézanne. His paintings and colorful lithographs caught the attention of the prestigious art critics Jean Cassou and George Waldemar, the latter comparing Kischka's style to "the song of the Nightingale". In 1938 Kischka's works were exhibited for the first time at the Salon des Indépendants and subsequently at the Salon d'Automne."

The poster is in excellent condition and - the colors genuinely vibrant and would bring a bit of color in any room.
