Some of our favourite posters are those for which we can find no specific information, but which make us smile because of their simple graphics, clear message and undeniable appeal. We know that Margitsziget (Engl: Margaret Island) is now the location of a three-month celebration called the Budapest Summer Festival where music, dance, theater, and comedy shows are put on for adults and children alike. They even have boat rides and a spa! But that festival was established 27 years after this poster was made, so we're not quite sure what's been celebrated here...

That said, this happy woman (very reminiscent of Matisse's cut-outs) looks like she's really enjoying herself. Why or where is a bit of mystery to us, but we nonetheless love her energy and verve! Great colours, great condition, great poster! This dancer would look beautiful in a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, sun room... anywhere a splash of joy and happiness is needed! Poster is unlined, in very good condition.
