Kürthy, György

Kürthy was an actor, theatre director, stage designer and graphic designer. He played in several Hungarian theaters.

He designed his first posters in the early 1900s. These designs followed a decorative, two dimensional Art Nouveau style. He designed commercial and propaganda posters (for example a war bond poster during the First World War) as well. His black and white design for a war loan became and emblematic image of World War I. The title says: "To give them a chance to return as soon as possible"  (Hogy mielőbb visszatérhessenek).                                                                                                                                  .
