Treasure of the Emir
Az emír kincse
|Mayer, Gyula||A2 1/2 Sheet (cca. 42 x 59 cm)|
|1970||Fine, fold marks.|
Colourful and impressive composition for a Soviet movie, 'Treasure of the Emir - Encounter at the Old Mosque'. With its vivid colours and floating shapes the design reflects the influence of American Pop Art painting.
The designer of the poster, Gyula Mayer was mostly active as a poster designer during the 1960s - 1980s. He created film and commercial posters mostly, but he also designed logos, for instance for the most prestigious department store at that time, Skála.
