.”Le Water Polo” is from “Les Joies du Sport” a collection of 45 original pochoir illustrations by Milivoj Uzelac a Croatian artist ( 1897 – 1977) born in Mostar, now Bosnia Hercegovina and published in Paris as a limited edition of 750 for a book by Maurice and Jacque Goddet for the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles. During the 1920’s and 1930’s Uzelac was part of a group of artists known as the Group of four and he was very influential in the Zagreb modern art scene at that time. Uzelac is best known for his portraits and scenes showing bohemian characters. This print is in good condition except for a crease that angles across the middle of the image that will not show when framed. It is signed in the plate by the artist.
