Olga is one of the most significant author of Czechoslovakian film posters. She created dozens of them. She got famous thanks to the iconic poster for Robert Bresson’s film Une Femme Douche (Gentle Creature), even though she personaly doesn’t particularly like that one (and even though the author of the original image that she took her inspiration from is a fashion and celebrity photographer Ben Stern famous for photographs of Sue Lyons wearing heart-shaped sunglasses on the set of Stanley Kubrick’s Lolita that became the iconic poster for the film).
