JEAN CARLU (French / 1900-1997)

Jean Carlu was born in Bonnieres-sur-Seine, and died in Nogent-sur-Marne. After an accident at the age of 18 in which he lost his right arm, Carlu studied to be an artist. It was Jean Carlu who incorporated the aesthetics of Cubism into commercial art, in many posters distinguished by their elegant clarity of line and their mastery of form and space.
