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 the Artist: Leszek Rózga was a Polish artist, who, after having taken individual lessons in painting and drawing from Maria Skarbek-Kruszewska, studied at Fine Arts School in Lodz, in studios of professors like Adam Rychtarski, Stefan Wegner and Ludwik Tyrowicz. He continued his studies at the Fine Arts School in Katowice, where he studied painting and engraving, and obtained a diploma with honors in 1954 from the Fine Arts Academy in Krakow. He continued his studies in graphic arts at the Fine arts school in Lodz, where he later founded the Faculty of graphic arts with Stanislaw Fijalkowski and Roman Artymowski. Rózga's work is part of major collections like the Hermitage, the Bibliothèque Nationale de Paris, the Albertina in Vienna and the World bank in Washington D.C. He is considered as one of the most important artists in the history of graphic arts in Poland. (astsper.com)
