Description

On 4th June 1968 the Poster Museum at Wilanów was opened as the world’s first poster museum, a branch of the National Museum in Warasaw. This undertaking started under the auspices of Prof. Stansilav Lorentz, the then Director of the National Museum in Warsaw, who granted several thousands of posters from the museum as a nucleus of the collection.

Presently the Musem has one of the largest collections of art posters in the world, consisting of over 55,000 items. The collection of Polish posters of 1892-2002 contains about 30,000 items and is the most complete set of works in the world considered to be a canon in this area of artistic activity. The collection of foreign posters, which has emerged mostly due to grants from the Warsaw Biennale and gifts from artists from world over, is also considered as the one of the finest collections of world art posters. In putting the collections together top priority is given to the artistic, rather than documentary aspects although the latter are also given due consideration in the development of sub-collections illustrating major historical periods.
