A TEARDROP FOT STAROWIEYSKI

Franciszek Starowieyski, one of the greatest figures of international poster design died on the 23rd of February. The Polish artist was particularly important for the Hungarians, as well. One of the posters of the 26-year old designer, The Crying Dove Of Peace mourned the 1956 Revolution of Hungary. He printed the lithography in hundreds of copies and put on the streets and squares all over in Warsaw. In Poland and maybe also worldwide, The Crying Dove Of Peace became the symbol of the crushed Hungarian revolution. Done with the postering, Starowieyski left for Budapest to fight with the Hungarian students against the Soviet tanks, but in Czechoslovakia, he was arrested by the police during an identity check and was made to return.
Drop a tear in memory of Starowieyski!The Hungarian graphic artists sent drops of tears to Krzysztof Ducki, the Polish-Hungarian poster designer, who compiled the following poster out of them in memory of Franciszek Starowieyski: http://posterpage.ch/div/news09/n090227.htm
