Description:

Budapest International Fair 1935 is a vintage Hungarian event advertising poster designed by Barna Basilides.

After the Nazis came to power in Germany, several Hungarian artists associated with the closed Bauhaus returned to Hungary. Among them, Marcell Breuer, who co-founded an architectural firm with Farkas Molnar, who also studied at the Bauhaus, and Jozsef Fischer. Their only work, which was eventually built, was on a public tender for the design of the pavilions of the 1935 Budapest International Fair. They achieved a split first place and some of the pavilions were actually built according to their plans.
