A refined poster for an exhibition of the famous Hungarian painter, Lili Ország, which was designed by her colleague Endre Bálint. Lili Ország was a unique artist who lived in poverty during her life despite she was a great talent. Endre Bálint was an acclaimed artist already and he wasn't only the collegue of Lili Ország but also her master and her best friend. Therefore, for Bálint designing a poster for Ország's exhibition wasn't just a commission but an expression of friendship and respect.
He applied the back and white motives typical of Ország on the poster whilst her name and the time and place of the exhibition is written in red with a very minimalistic typography.
