Poster to promote the Képcsarnok (Hall of Paintings) in Budapest. Kepcsarnok was the company dealing in contemporary fine and applied art during the socialist era in Hungary. The company was founded in 1948 when the shops selling art supplies and commercial galleries were nationalized. At the beginning, the Kepcsarnok consisted of a few art supply shops and some galleries and its main responsibility was art commerce. In 1954 Fine Art Foundation of the Hungarian People's Republic took the leadership of the Hall of Pictures and its scope of duty widened with products of applied arts. The main goal of the Kepcsarnok is to transfer the values carried in Hungarian visual art to as many people as possible.
