An original Charles Roka print on board of 'Gipsy Girl' displayed in its original frame. A stunning, voluptuous, dark haired beauty reminiscent of Sophia Loren!

The print features fresh vibrant colours with some very minor marks (please take a look at the photographs for more detail. The frame is also in very good vintage condition with minor scuffs - a rare find!

About the Artist:
Charles Roka (Róka Károly, 1912–1999) was a Hungarian painter living in Norway whose name became synonymous with an excess of artistic kitsch.
Roka was born in Hungary in 1912. After he finished his studies on the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest he went on a European journey. In 1937 he finally settled in Norway, and lived in Bærum, outside Oslo until his death.
In 1950 he painted his first picture of the half-naked Gipsy Girl whom he had seen in Marseille a few years earlier. It is Roka's numerous variations of this Gipsy Girl which made his financial success as a painter. His other favourite subjects were Hungarian folklore, especially Gipsy people dancing csárdás and portraits.
