Ronald Brooks Kitaj
Vintage SIGNED Kitaj Poster, La Fabbrica, Milan (A Life 1975) woman in red dress

1975

$600

About

Printed in 1975, this poster features the encounter between an alluring woman dressed in red, and a man with his back to the viewer. The light of a streetlamp is beautifully imitated with speckled texture that silhouettes the man. The poster reproduces his lithograph titled "A Life (A)" which is based on his pastel work Femme de Peuple II, and a pulp novel’s salacious cover. Known for his expressive style and charged imagery, Kitaj went against the grain of abstraction during his career, producing nuanced figurative work. This poster’s moody scene displays Kitaj’s ability to evoke emotion and drama with fluid lines and bold color. This print is an example of Kitaj's interest in playful, sensual compositions that were equally inspired by art history and popular culture. Paper 36.5 x 23.5 in. / 92.7 x 59.7 cm. Original poster for an exhibition of Petersburg Press publications at La Fabbrica, Milan in 1975. The poster is printed on fine paper and is signed by the artist lower center in pencil.
