Product description:Ray Charles/Jazz Greats was created by Wlademar Swierzy who is an important award-winning artist of the 2nd generation of the Polish School of Posters. Ray Charles is one of Swierzy's series of jazz posters that concludes the Polish jazz story under Communism. Beginning in the 1970s, with a slow but progressive increase in political freedom, jazz blossomed and poster artists were engaged by the State to create posters to promote jazz events as well as to celebrate jazz musicians. Swierzy at this time started designing posters honoring American jazz greats including besides Ray Charles, Jimi Hendrix, Thelonius Monk, Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. This limited edition vintage contemporary poster is linen-backed as are all fine vintage posters and its condition is as mint as a poster can be. It would make a wonderful addition to any room in a home or office, especially one that wishes to emphasize American jazz in an artistic as well as historically fascinating manner.
