Description

Decorative poster-map of Sarajevo, Bosnia, made at the end of World War II in order to advertise and promote local industry.

The print was made by a prominent Bosnian artist Roman Petrović (1896-1947), schooled in Cracow, Budapest and Paris before WWII.

A graduate of the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, his expressionist art emphasises social themes, borrowing from diverse influences. The Association of Artists of Bosnia and Herzegovina named its gallery, opened in 1980, Galerija Roman Petrović in his honor.
