World Fencing Championships 1959 in Budapest
Tram poster (cca. 17 x 24 cm)
Paper, hand painting, drawing (paint, pencil).
Original poster maquette for the 1959 World Fencing Championship. Lajos Vajda made two different designs for the same occasion. The artist used elements of both designs for the final design, which became the printed poster.
The design shows a Hungarian hussar with his sword, which refers to the Hungarian traditions in fencing. The typography of the title is very elegant and decorative.
