Alfred Lehner
« on: June 02, 2014, 04:08:09 PM »
Alfred Lehner (1913-1986) was Yugoslavian painter.
He was one of the artists that create Yugoslavian Movie posters in 1950s and 1960s.

I collect movie posters done by Yugoslavian artists (not just those), and Alfred Lehner is one of my favorites, so I would like to introduce small part of his work to you.
Here are some of his posters. What do you think ? Do you like them ? What is your favorite ?

Thanks for moving this thread, Jeff.
I hadn't seen it till now.
Lehner is one of those unsung artists here in the States.
What a shame. He was extremely talented.
