Between Art Deco and Modernism – Polish Posters from 1918 - 1939
An exhibition of archival posters from the collection of the Poster Museum at Wilanów
 
Since the late 19th – early 20th century, poster design has been recognized in the Polish artistic tradition as a source of national pride. Poster design was considered a driving force of artistic progress as it brought together architecture, painting and sculpture with artistic design. Artists were not limited to the creation of unique pieces; they were also able to use mass production to present common symbols and aesthetics of the times to their work. It was precisely this ability to blend both the new and the existing that brought Polish artists to a level of international recognition for their modern stylization and interpretation of folklore. The two distinct approaches, traditionalism and modernism, complemented each other and were often combined in a manner which allowed for individual expression. It was this harmonious synthesis that best defined Polish poster art in the period between the wars
