Professionally framed. The person I got it from purchased it from a gallery in LA about 20 years ago. Contemporary Polish circus posters, emerged in 1962 as a genre of the Polish School of Posters. They are characterized by their display of aesthetic qualities such as painterly gestures, linear design, hand-lettering, metaphors, humor, and vibrant colors. Usually based on a single theme and meant to be advertisements; they were created in an attempt to interest the passerby in the upcoming circus. Several Polish painters contributed to establishing the art style, among them Henryk Tomaszewski. Perfect for fans of circus, theater, movie posters, magic, and clowns.
