About Polish Posters:  Beginning in the 1950s and through the 1980s, the Polish School of Posters combined the aesthetics of painting with the succinctness and simple metaphor of the poster. It developed characteristics such as painterly gesture, linear quality, and vibrant colors, as well as a sense of individual personality, humor, and fantasy. It was in this way that the polish poster was able to make the distinction between designer and artist less apparent. 

About this Artist: Edward Lutczyn is usually associated with his prolific work as a satirical newspaper draftsman, but this versatile graphic artist has also illustrated over a hundred children’s books, made album covers, designed postage stamps and much, much more. His hefty oeuvre also includes the fruits of his forays into poster design, among which we find this 1980 poster for Satyrykon.
