About

Amusing Mid-Century Modern original etching “La Java” created by Iconic artist Boris O'Klein. Signed, in pencil, the lower right corner and titled JAVA, lower left corner. Professionally framed in a silver tone frame with matting. Approximate unframed Dimensions: 13.25” x 10”. Approximate framed dimensions: 20" x 16.5 x 0.50”. Excellent Condition. Boris O'Klein, born Arthur Boris O'Klein, September 26, 1893-1985, a French artist and cartoonist, immigrated to France from Russia with his family when he was a young boy. He settled in Paris after World War I and became a prolific anthropomorphic artist well known for his watercolors and etchings of dogs getting into mischief. His images referred to as the Naughty or Dirty Dogs of Paris are considered humorous and often quite risqué. The etchings/prints are generally called "The Naughty Dogs" or "The Dirty Dogs" or "The Dirty Dogs of Paris. The two main themes of O'Klein's art are public urination and male-female flirtation or desire. The numerous scenes by O'Klein of dogs lined up against walls or beside trees to urinate are part of what gives the prints their incendiary appeal for some viewers. In other prints, a number of male dogs will follow a female dog with an air of evident interest.
