About the Poster:  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 the artist: Andrej Pagowski studied under Waldemar Swierzy at the State College of Fine Arts in Poznan. He has worked as a cartoonist, illustrator and book designer and now owns an agency called Studio P that designs posters.

Overall very good condition, some ruffles on margins and minor tears (please see photos).
