Cyrk Large Stripy Cat Tiger 1971 Polish Circus Poster, Hubert Hilscher

Original Polish cyrk (circus) poster featuring a wonderfully psychedelic large stripy cat design by Hubert Hilscher. Super rare first print run.

The ‘Cyrk” circus poster in Poland appeared for the first time in 1962 when the ZPR (Zjednoczone Przedsiębiorstwa Rozrywkowe, or United Entertainment Enterprises), the state agency that oversaw the circus, commissioned leading artists from the Polish School of Posters to develop a modern approach to the circus poster.

The ZPR wanted a new look for the circus poster to complement the circus’ efforts to upgrade its image. Not intended to advertise specific performances, they, rather, celebrated the essence of the circus through rich artistic expression with designs typically featuring clever metaphors, bold colours and humour. Heavy in symbolism, provocative and highly original the designs remain contemporary to this day and continue to gain appreciation.

This very rare poster is from the first print run in 1971,  is sized 26 x 38 inches and in Rolled Near Mint/ Mint Condition. It will be sent rolled (unframed). We also have the same poster form later print runs listed on our site.
