The Poster Museum in Warsaw's Wilanów district is hosting an exhibition called "...and Print Created Woman" ("...i druk stworzył kobietę") depicting the history of poster images of women.

The exhibition contains around 200 posters ranging from Art Nouveau works from the 19th century to contemporary, anonymous billboards. The poster artists include Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Alphonse Mucha, Pablo Picasso, Wojciech Fangor and Franciszek Starowieyski.

The exhibits come from the private collections of Michał Poniż, who is the curator of the exhibition. For 35 years Poniż has been traveling the world and collecting posters from every corner of the globe. The rest of the exhibits come from the Poster Museum's collections. The exhibition features both rarely seen works as well as universally known poster reproductions.
