sexist.

It was after all 50 years ago.

And not at all racist given the lady's appearance.

Actually, it was not only sexist but racist, too. A dark female serving while males.

We don't know who she's serving; they're outside the picture. It could be one of the Shirelles.

Unfortunately, we do. Who travelled by air 50 years ago most frequently???

That depends. First class has always been eclectic, and those sitting in first on flights to Poland may well have been diplomats from around the world.

This is off-topic though. Why not post some art instead?

No, it is NOT. We are commenting on art of the past, aren`t we? :):):)

Why not post some art instead?

Tomorrow. :):)

There were no black flying attendants at that time in PLL LOT, so this lady is white and only well tanned and serving was her job (extremely well paid for that time).

Definitely intended to be white (blue eyes) not even sure about the tanned part as the whole thing is very stylized....

Extremely sexist.

Yes and the slogan on the poster makes it even worse, I think... Besides, it's pretty dreadful artwise... There were better LOT posters, imho.

It's of its time, and by a well known artist.

@jon357, I know, I kept a book for children from my childhood with his illustrations :):

I can't say I'm a great fan of his style, but he did better stuff than that poster, imho.

He reminds me of another artist working in the same period. Hard to remember which.

Here`s even a more sexist poster. Outrageous. Fekking male chauvinist swine made and propagated it.

I agree sexist posters are disgusting!

Not every Polish man is proficient on the vacuum cleaner.

By Peter Solarz, a Chicago-based artist and photographer of Polish background.

He specialises in landscapes and nature images. It's sometimes not easy to tell which of his works are paintings and which are photographs.

I really like those, very surreal.

Here's a nice one.

Konstanty Kryżycki (1858 - 1911)
Wieczór na Ukrainie (Evening in Ukraine), 1901.

Nice one. The sky is clouded but the sun rays break through the clouds behind the artist and light those houses in the background.
I like such contrasts.

PS. In my youth, more exactly at uni, I decided to try out my painting skills. That was the time of my religious revival so I copied the famous Black Madonna portrait onto a piece of paper with oil paints. The effect was horrible - a primitive artist like Nikofor painted better.

Here is a far better pic than mine.

To celebrate today's special day - "Pączek z konfiturą" by Sebastian Talar (oil on wood panel, 20 x 20 cm, 2016) :))):

You can't suddenly start painting at university age without any previous training and expect great results :))) To paint well you have to first learn to draw at all and then it takes a lot of practice to do it well.

Also:

the famous Black Madonna portrait onto a piece of paper with oil paints

1. Paper isn't the best for oil painting. Primed canvas or primed wood panels are much better.
2. In order to paint with oil paints you have to know the basics on how to do it.
3. People are one of the most difficult subjects to draw/paint. It's better for beginners to start with something simpler, imho, in order not to get discouraged and to learn the basics.

In other words - you can't just decide out of the blue to climb Mount Everest without any prior experience in climbing and expect not to die in the process :)))) 😉

@Paulina

Is that a painting?Well, obviously it is from your comments.
Incredible, it looks like a photo.....

@Miloslaw, yes, it's an oil painting :)

Incredible, it looks like a photo.....

If you think that then you haven't seen much - there's even more realistic art out there :)))

Maybe true, but that is still a fantastic painting!

And here's a landscape by the same painter:

It is a beautiful painting and I prefer it but not as realistic as the doughnut.
