Original poster of the airline Sabena promoting the air network in the Belgian Congo, drawn by Jacques Ochs around 1930
Painter, draftsman, portraitist (and Olympic fencing champion) from Liège, Jacques Ochs is particularly famous in Belgium. It is in particular his fruitful collaboration with the weekly magazine Why shouldn't it be? ...and the many Unes he's been given that have made him famous. Ochs is also a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Liège where he is in charge of the painting course. In 1934, he was appointed director of the Academy as well as of the Fine Arts Museum of the city of Liège.
This original poster of the Belgian airline Sabena is part of a series: several versions are printed with under the generic drawing of Jacques Ochs the city of departure (Antwerp...) and the list of connections. This is the "general" model which highlights the entire network.
