Starowieyski, Franciszek | 1970 | A Gentle Woman


This is a very beautiful but heartbreaking Polish poster which perfectly depicts the 1969 French film it was designed for. It’s a film about a young man who finds his dreamy gentle wife has committed suicide. He decides to lie beside her body through the night to go back through the memories of their life together and try to understand why she did it. It’s got amazing reviews and is a film for our watch list, if we can buy in enough hankies.

Starowieyeski was a legend of the Polish School of Posters. His work is very collectable and has been displayed in museums around the world.
