Cyrk Ringmaster Horse 1970s Polish Circus Poster, Waldemar Swierzy

We adore the deep, rich colours on this original Polish Circus / Cyrk poster from 1970s, fantastic Horse Ringmaster design by Waldemar Swierzy.

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 vintage offset lithograph is sized 26 x 39 inches. It's in Rolled,  Near Mint/Mint condition, will be sent rolled (unframed).
