"Hungary had a solid school of poster artists, influenced by Paris. Arpad Basch had encountered Mucha and moved in his wake" (Weill p.119)


Using soft pastel tones, Basch has combined a traditional well executed farm scene, with dynamic Art nouveau border design and type style, creating a beautiful and effective poster. Note the repeated wheel sprocket design behind the text in the far left panel.The poster's text reads, "The Kuhnee company, Hungary's oldest agricultural machine works, the famous Hungária and Monosonidrill seed drills, Moson, Budapest"
