This rich original lithographic poster created for an exhibition of his paintings at the Galerie Matignon in Paris in 1978, is a typical example of Franco-Armenian artist Jean Jansem poetry. Jansem’s primary sources of inspiration were Goya and Brueghel. His mother and his children were the main heroes in his earlier works. Jansem was characterized as a miserablist, an artist of unfortunate people. The humanity and fragility of his subjects are often portrayed with soft elegance and melancholy, yet there is always a feeling of hope and love in his work.
Jansem's artworks are internationally known, and are part of museum collections throughout France, Japan and the United States.
