Cyrk Magician Levitatation 1975 Polish Circus Poster, Miedza-Tomaszewski

Original Polish Cyrk/Circus poster from 1975 featuring a very fun design by Stanislaw Miedza-Tomaszewski of a Magician working his levitation 'magic'! A wonderful and rare first edition poster.

The ‘Cyrk” circus poster in Poland appeared for the first time in 1962 when the ZPR (Zjednoczone Przedsiębiorstwa Rozrywkowe, or United Entertainment Entreprises), 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 first edition offset lithograph is sized 26 1/4 x 38 1/2 inches and in rolled Excellent condition. Little paper-loss on bottom left corner. Little creasing, nicks and tears on edges. Looks fabulous. It will be sent rolled (unframed).
