Used: Very Good
Lithographed poster, n. d. (ca 1925); 3 1/4 ft. x 6 1/2 ft.; three panels, attached at verso; folded; several closed cuts and splits to fold lines; a few small pieces of tape to verso and pin holes to corners; a bit of wear to edges; very good- condition.A massive and truly stunning piece by the Serbian pioneer of graphic design Dragutin Inkiostri-Medenjak, pseudonym for Karlo Inkiostri (1866 - 1942), one we have never seen before in the trade or at auction. Born in Belgrade, he traveled throughout the South Slavic countries, collecting and cataloging ethnic motifs and patterns and attempting to establish specific, national, decorative styles. He would also become a professor at the Arts and Crafts School in Belgrade in the early 1900s. After Austria-Hungary's invasion of Serbia in 1914, he would design numerous patriotic posters, for which he would be arrested and prosecuted. He would become known for his incredible frescoes and murals on historic buildings and churches, including one of the oldest and most valuable historical monuments of Belgrade, Vukova Zaduzbina.
