Tables poster by Simon Hantai


Artist: Simon Hantai

This is a real beauty. It features Tables (table, board, boards) by the Hungarian artist, Simon Hantai (1922-2008.) The poster was produced by the Louisiana Museum, Denmark - it was created for their Hantai show in 1978 but this is a contemporary reprint, again by Louisiana.

Hantai joined the Ecole de Paris after many years of living in the French capital. He drew inspiration from Matisse's later works and from the American abstract expressionist, Jackson Pollack. He set out to test a myriad of painting techniques and genres and almost ended up with a compendium of the history of painting from 1920 to 1950 - had to go through the entire development to find himself. In the wake of Pollock and 50s action painting, Hantai broke with surrealism and was found his own style.
