This is an original vintage poster for The Party (Veselica or Вечеринка) a Yugoslavian postwar romantic melodrama which was originally released in 1960. This poster was printed in early 1963 for the release of the film in the Soviet Union. It was designed by one of our favorite artists, Myron Lukyanov (Мирон Лукянов).
Poster & Artist:
This poster was printed in Moscow by Reklamfilm (Рекламфильм) on March 7, 1963 with a run of 12,000 copies. It was designed by Myron Lukyanov (Мирон Лукянов) a prolific artist who designed hundreds of film posters and was active from 1959 until 1993, he passed away in 2002.The design features a shy young man with a missing left arm who's shadow forms that of a solider. He's standing alone with colorful wallpaper behind him and a framed photo of a young woman.
Among Myron's posters are some of our favorite Soviet film posters, including designs for Stripped Trip (Полосатый Рейс) and White Sun of the Desert (Белое Солнце Пустыни). Myron's designs often have a colorful, fun feel that's engaging and timeless. There's something modern and dare we say "hip" about them despite their age. Myron was also active as a propaganda poster designer and taught at the The Surikov Art Institute in Moscow (Московский государственный академический художественный институт имени В. И. Сурикова).
Size & Condition:
The poster measures 55 x 79 centimeters or 33.8 x 21.6 inches. It is in fair to good condition with folds and creasing, some discoloration and pin holes. The poster will display well as-is, but could benefit from linen-backing to smooth out the folds. The photos attached are of the poster itself, we only have one.
The Party or Veselica is the story of young man who has lost an arm in the war and tries to find his place in postwar Ljubljana.
