The Centro de Documentación Circo Méliès, the Instituto Polaco de Cultura and 21 Districts are organising the exhibition The Colours of the Circus: The Polish School of Posters, which can be seen at the Centro Cultural Eduardo Úrculo (Plaza Donoso, 5, Madrid) until 17 October.
During the golden age of Polish poster art, that is, from the end of World War II until well into the 1970s, the most recognised and acclaimed motif was undoubtedly the circus. For a quarter of a century, circus posters met with an unquestionable level of artistic quality, as well as the favour and applause of the public. The exhibition is made up of posters from the golden age of Polish poster art and includes pieces by some of the most renowned artists of this movement, such as Waldemar Świerzy, Tadeusz Jodłowski, Wiktor Górka and Andrzej Pągowski, among others.
