This exhibition reveals the diversity and unique quality of Dutch poster arts during the first half of this century. Issued in small numbers and intended primarily for display in stores, the Dutch poster is designed for perusal rather than to elicit a quick reaction. The posters reveal post-impressionistic and Japanese print influence.
