TRIBUTE TO ANNA HUSKOWSKA

Anton AnnaA TRIBUTE TO THE ARTIST ANNA HUSKOWSKA (Brzezinski, 2005, Oil on Acrylic, 16 in. X 20 in.)In 2005, Apparition Studio-Chicago asked Anton Brzezinski to interpret Huskowska's body of work for a special poster exhibit, and he painted this montage on clear acrylic to impart the effect of a stained glass window for the studio wall. The images in this piece are prominent art images and typography drawn from a portfolio of Huskowska's poster work spanning the mid-1950s to mid-1960s. The characters and icons will be very familiar to serious collectors of the Polish poster, and we're especially excited to share this painting with you!
