description
The author has designed this poster in a post-modern idiom, combining various styles, contents and media. The ornamentally decorated ground, with a dominant depiction of a corridor with barrel vaulting and the antique sculpture of the head of a young woman also includes scene in which two figures from the world of the cartoon, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, are talking. The motif of corridor and sculpture symbolises the conception of the heritage and the world of the museum characteristic of the beginnings of the museum discipline, while the figures from the cartoon belong to contemporaneity and the new media, which at the time the poster was published were becoming increasingly in evidence in museums.

By representing heterogeneous subjects in the poster, the author is sending a message to diverse categories of museum visitors, the emphasis, though, being upon the young.
