Cyrk Woman Juggler 1968 Polish Circus Poster, Maciej Urbaniec

Superb design by Maciej Urbaniec features on this original Polish Circus / Cyrk poster from 1968. A very rare poster in fabulous condition.

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 first edition offset lithograph has been professionally linen-backed and measures 26 3/4 x 38 1/4 inches (27 3/4 x 39 3/4 inches inclduing linen-backing). It will be sent rolled (unframed).
