Edward Trojanowski (1873–1930), painter and graphic designer, also working on interiors, kilims and stained glass windows. Studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sankt Petersburg, also in Munich and Paris. Co-founder of the Polish Applied Arts Society (1901).

The poster is part of a bigger print that was preserved in its entirety in the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow and comes from the Paweł Ettinger's collection. The missing part is a uniform transparent framing with a text in Russian and Polish: "Golden Horn" the cheapest illustrated weekly on artistic, literary and social issues ["Złoty Róg" najtańszy ilustrowany tygodnik literacki, artystyczny i społeczny]. The poster was printed in Jan Cotta's lithographic printing house in Warsaw. In the 1960s, the company was the only one to print and post theatre posters for the Warsaw Government Theatres.

The "Golden Horn" magazine, issued irregularly in the first decades of the 20th century in Warsaw, was published by the "Warszawska Spółka Nakładowa" publishing house and printed in the atelier belonging to L. Biliński and W. Maślankiewicz. A young man blowing a horn clearly points at a group of educated youth, the magazine's target audience.
