Sunday in New York

Maria (Mucha) Ihnatowicz was born in 1937 and studied under the master of the Polish School of Posters Prof. Henryk Tomaszewski at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, graduating in 1963.

She was a key member of the Polish School of Posters during the 1960s and 1970s. Outgoing and confident she held her own in a profession dominated by men. Mucha developed a joyful, painterly style all of her own; full of colour and beauty. She produced dozens of posters over the next two decades and numerous book covers for the iconic KIK series.
