Vintage Polish Posters | Husband and Wife | Morycinski

Aleksander Fredro (1793–1876) was a Polish poet, playwright and author active during Polish Romanticism in the period of partitions by neighboring empires. His works, including plays written in the octosyllabic verse (Zemsta) and in prose (Damy i Huzary) as well as fables, belong to the canon of Polish literature. Fredro was harshly criticized by some of his contemporaries for light-hearted humor or even alleged immorality which led to years of his literary silence. Many of Fredro’s dozens of plays were published and popularized only after his death. His best-known works have been translated into English, French, German, Russian, Czech, Romanian, Hungarian and Slovak. The poster artist Grzegorz Morycinski was born in 1936. Morycinski attended the Secondary School of Fine Arts and in 1956, he began studies at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. Later he started working as a graphic designer at Moda Polska. In 1964 he went to Paris for a short time. In 1969 he received a three-month scholarship from the Italian government. Between 1974 and 1976, he lived in London and Sweden. Morycinski received the National Competition award twice. He was active in the Association of Polish Artists and he was a scholarship holder of the Fund for the Development of Visual Art. In 2006, the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage awarded him a special prize and in 2008, he was awarded the Silver Medal for Merit to Culture Gloria Artis. He passed away in 2015.
