From up close, Paul Brühwiler’s (b. 1939) portrait of Luis Buñuel looks almost like an abstract painting. From a distance, however, the expressive countenance, captured with choppy brushstrokes, seems very much alive. Buñuel’s Surrealist films brought bewildering imagery that oscillates between dream and nightmare to the big screen. In his poster, Brühwiler shows the director in a three-quarter view with an inward-directed gaze. Despite the impression of repose, Buñuel’s inner agitation and creative restlessness are immediately palpable.
