Feliks Topolski (1907–1989) Self Portrait -Polish Artist

Feliks Topolski (1907–1989) Self Portrait

oil on paper

Acquired from a family member; signed SKI lower right. She explained he also signs his name SKI SKI as a recognition that 'ski' appears in his name twice; once backwards once forwards. The sense of humor is evident from his depiction of his arms which are longer than anatomically correct. Generally dismissive of his own artwork. Note the cigarette close to the open paint can, Polish fatalism. In all a very special unique piece of art by an important painter.

Unexamined outside of the frame. Appears to be in very good condition with no issues.

measures : 19. x 24.5 inches framed; 13.5 x 8 inches

Mr. Topolski's paintings, water colors and drawings are in the British Museum, the Tate Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Imperial War Museum and museums in New York, Toronto, Tel Aviv, Melbourne and Warsaw. He also designed theater sets and costumes and published an annual pictorial journal called ''Chronicle'' for 26 years.
