EUROPA - Poster Art

<b>EUROPA 2003 – POSTER ART</b><p>Posters have a long history. They have been used to publicize various events and to advertise both commercial products and political ideas. The history of posters can be traced as far back as the ancient Rome. The earliest posters announced theatrical performances and gladiator games. The invention of the printing press in the Middle Ages ended the painstaking process of handmaking every copy and led to the production of small leaflets, which were used in the 16th century to announce theatrical performances. In the 17th and 18th centuries leaflets in England and France had political contents and contained caricatures. The modern history of posters began with the invention of lithography and outstanding poster artists such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, J. Chéret and A. Mucha who made the illustration the dominant feature of the posters, thus revolutionizing their look. Later on, the artistic style of posters often changed. Expressionists and Dadaists created striking posters for shocking purposes, while the post-revolutionary Russian avant-garde did not use any text at all. Since the beginning of the 19th century, poster art has also attracted many Slovene painters and architects who have created them on occasional basis. Recently designed posters offer various creative solutions and are often designed by specially trained graphic artists.</p><p>Breda Ilich Klančnik
