Milivoj Uzelac

Polo

17.5 x 22 inches

A highly decorative Pochoir, or stencil, print by Milivoj Uzelec (1897-1977) published in Paris in 1932.

This most unusual print is from a scarce de luxe edition of Uzelac's Sports that was printed on Imperial Paper of Japan. They epitomise the glorification of the male body and the passion for physical fitness that swept across Europe in the 1930's. Uzelac was born in Herzegovina but studied in Prague before settling in Paris from the 1920's onwards. These wonderfully evocative prints were hand coloured for Maurice and Jacques Goddet's Les Joies du Sport and were published in Paris as a limited edition of 750. This depiction of a polo match in full swing is one of the most sought after of Uzelac's images.
