Jan Lenica - Tannhäuser (1974)

Posted by Hello

The newest addition to our home is this vintage poster for a Polish production of Tannhäuser. The artist is Jan Lenica (len-EE-tsa), poster designer and animator, who we found out about quite by accident while looking at opera posters that might adorn our bare walls. I was getting tired of the standard fare and started exploring until we found Lenica. My girlfriend forgot about posters for a couple months until I presented her with this for Xmas. She was delightfully surprised. (Actually, she gaped in shock - I got tons of "good boyfriend" points.)
