Description:

Irén Tomaska's humorous and colourful composition advertises canned soup in general, without any brand. These type of advertisements were typical, especially in the first part of the socialist era. Besides a happy man who enjoys his soup the composition shows many types of vegetables allude to the ingredients of the canned soup. The slogan also emphasize the advantages of the product: Canned soup is ready in a few minutes and is excellent.

Tomaska's posters usually represent the playful and humorous tendency in the poster art of the 1950s and 1960s. With another charming design for the Zi-Zi candy, she won the prize for the best commercial poster in 1958.
