Cyrk Two Musical Clowns 1972 Polish Circus Poster, Stachurski

Original first edition Polish cyrk (circus) poster featuring a wonderful Musical Clowns design by Marian Stachurski. As is typical of Stachurski's design the colours are simply superb. 

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 rare first edition vintage poster is sized 26 1/4 x 37 1/4 inches and in Rolled Excellent/Near Mint Condition. Paper darkened with age, couple of very small tears on edges and light creasing in places. Very little spotting on left hand margin. Looks fabulous. It will be sent rolled (unframed).
