Vintage Polish Posters | Romulus Wielki | Romulus The Great

The artist for this unique 1966 poster is unknown, but it depicts the artist´s rendition of the famous play by Friedrich Durrenmatt. Durrenmatt (1921–1990) was a Swiss author and dramatist. He was a proponent of epic theater whose plays reflected the recent experiences of World War II. The politically active author’s work included avant-garde dramas, philosophical crime novels, and macabre satire. Dürrenmatt was a member of the Gruppe Olten, a group of left-wing Swiss writers who convened regularly at a restaurant in the city of Olten. His first major success was the play Romulus The Great. Set in the year A.D. 476, the play explores the last days of the Roman Empire, presided over and brought about by its last emperor, Romulus.
