    Description

    Hungary Travel Poster (National Hungarian Council of Tourist Traffic, 1935). Poster (25" X 37.5").
    Gitta Mallász (1907-1992) was a Hungarian graphic artist, swimming champion and writer. While studying graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest, Mallász became best friends with Hanna Dallos, and joined her atelier upon graduation. Throughout the 1930s Mallász created sensational Art Deco travel and commercial posters, often collaborating with Dallos. The works are an amicable blending of folk art and modern elements, which appealed to the growing nationalism during the inter-war years. Sadly, because of Dallos' Jewish heritage, she was deported in 1944 and did not survive the concentrations camps. Mallász went on to publish a book about her friend, Talking With Angels, and continued a successful career in graphic design. This original travel poster for Hungary (the French version) is a perfect example of Mallász' both modern and homespun style, with bold color punctuating the darling image of a young boy in traditional dress. Chips in the right border have been corrected with professional restoration. Very Fine- on Linen.
