This colourful and vibrant vintage poster is an advertisement for travel to Hungary during the Art Deco period. Focusing on the special and very well-observed May Day celebrations, the artist has illustrated a couple in traditional dress with a May poles.
According to a popular Hungarian travel site, "Many Hungarian towns raise May Poles and stage festivals with various themes to honor this holiday. As with other holidays, whenever 1 May falls on a Tuesday or Thursday, the holiday officially becomes a long weekend, when families take off to travel and hotels are full. Left-wing parties also hold public rallies commemorating Labor Day ... The first of May is now a family day with a range of festivals and programs in Budapest and other towns of Hungary."
This rare poster is in overall very good condition with some minor edge wear and a small tape mark on the bottom middle margins. Most of the edge wear issues will disappear when the poster is framed.
Rare. From a private collection.
