Figures on a Stage, circa 1950

Framed (ref: 529)
Gouache, watercolour and collage, 12 x 13 in. (30.5 x 33 cm.)

Tags: design Neo-Romantics theatre

Provenance: the artist’s estate

This collage combines many threads of Littna’s richly coloured life: his interest in theatre and music (having studied at the music academy in Prague), his training at Goldsmiths College, London, under Graham Sutherland, and his appreciation of Continental art of the period – post-war Littna divided his time equally between London and Paris, where he was acquainted with Georges Braque and Georges Rouault, and friends with Jacques Villon and Oscar Kokoschka.
