Cyrk Lion with Acrobats 1965 Polish B1 Circus Poster, Tadeusz Jodlowski

We love the colours and whimsical design by Tadeusz Jodlowski that features on this original Polish Cyrk (circus) poster from 1965. The 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.

The Poster is sized 26 3/8 x 38 1/4 inches .Will be sent rolled (unframed).
