Eduardo Munoz Bachs Sold at Auction Prices

b. 1937 - d. 2001

Eduardo Munoz Bachs (1937–2001) was a Cuban poster artist. He was born on April 12, 1937 in Valencia, Spain, but moved to Cuba with his parents in 1941. In 1960, with no formal training in graphic design, he made the first poster for the Instituto Cubano de Arte e Industria Cinematográficos (ICAIC) that was founded shortly after the Cuban revolution to produce and promote Cuban films.
The association with ICAIC lasted for a lifetime, and Bachs made over 2,000 movie posters for them. He is counted among the greatest Cuban poster designers - a group nicknamed El maestro del cartel cubano de todos los tiempos - and contributed to the international admiration that the colorful Cuban posters enjoyed in the 1970s.

        Cine Movil / ICAIC. 1974.

        Est: $1,200 - $1,500

        ARTIST: EDUARDO MUNOZ BACHS (1937-2001) SIZE: 30 1/4 x 45 3/8 in./77 x 115.2 cm DESCRIPTION: Three months after his takeover of Cuba in 1959, Castro proclaimed cinema as a major art form to be pursued, and set up the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry (ICAIC). As a result, Cuba emerged in the 1960s as the most aggressive film-producing country of the third world. The young artists engaged in advertising this production created a fresh style, using national art forms, but giving them a new expressiveness by borrowing elements from pop and psychedelic trends, comic strips, and caricature, such as the stylized bicycle/bust of Chaplin seen here. “The style of Eduardo Bachs is perhaps the most easily recognizable. Born in Spain in 1937, he has lived in Cuba since he was five years old... Bachs’ whimsy, his characteristic bold use of color and line and his free lettering style are most reminiscent of France’s André and Raymond Savignac, the Swiss artist Celestino Piatti, as well as recent Czechoslovakian film posters” (Sterner, p. xxxi). This is a silkscreen print. (Contemporary; Film)
