London: Feliks Topolski, 1960. First Printing. This one-sheet double-sided lithograph in colors comprises nos. 15-18 from Vol. 8 of Topolski's Chronicle, a 25-year project in which he documented world history and culture. 45 x 18" unfolded, one side is about the future growth of world population, the other side is about the disaffected London youth marching against nuclear armament. Topolski (1907-1989) was a Polish-born expressionist painter and illustrator who made his home in London. Topolski's Chronicle appeared fortnightly from 1953 to 1979, interrupted only to accommodate his exploratory investigations across the globe. The Chronicles communicated his art and observations to a wider audience. They were independently published, without advertisements or subsidies. Since his death in 1989 Topolski's Chronicles have retained respect as a pictorial and political record spanning nearly 30 years of world history. The Chronicles contain 3,000 drawings, and were exhibited in New York City, Moscow, Cologne, Hamburg, Hawaii, Tel Aviv and serialised in the United States, Poland, Italy, Denmark and Switzerland. Joyce Cary wrote, it is "the most brilliant record we have of the contemporary scene as seized by a contemporary mind." Very good. Item #H24965
