Gara Arnold

1882 - 1929

Gara was a graphic artist and painter who designed a few posters during the 1920’s. He had a special talent for engraving, etching and woodcut; he achieved his greatest successes as an illustrator and graphic artist.

He published several graphic albums containing his works, for example his woodcut novels based on Puskin’s Anegin and Kleist’s Marquise of O. He also worked as a painter, and became a member of the Kéve artist group.

He also designed posters, which showcase his special Art Nouveau style. These works are very colorful, dynamic and playful compositions, representing a fantastic fairy-tale world. The rich ornateness of his posters was typical of Gara.                                                                                                                                               .
