Charles Kiffer Art

French, 1902-1992

Charles Kiffer, born in France, was well known for his figures, paintings, prints, posters, almost all devoted to theater, music hall and circus. From 1918, he attended the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In 1923, he created, for his pleasure, the portrait of Maurice Chevalier who entrusted him with the production of posters for his following shows in 1926 and 1927. From then on, he became the regular poster artist for the singer and created 13 posters for him. He illustrated posters for many stars like Georges Guétary (1933), Charles Trénet, Edith Piaf (1936), Yves Montand, Rina Ketty, Gaby Morlay in 1939. Kiffer also created many sets and stage curtains for the Casino de Paris. More than 65 years after his first poster, Kiffer still works in his studio on the Ile Saint-Louis in Paris, where he likes to entertain his friends and the great contemporary artists.
