Spotlight on: Original Vintage OSPAAAL Posters

PP0696_1_mThe Organisation of Solidarity with the People of Asia Africa and Latin America (OSPAAAL) was founded in Havana Cuba in 1966 as a political movement to fight imperialism and defend human rights. The organisation produced revolutionary posters in Spanish, English, French and Arabic that were stapled into their Tricontinental magazine and sent to subscribers around the world.

Art Guide 2018: Pin-Up Power

“Visually arresting, bold and inventive, posters are highly collectable…” AntikBar’s founder is featured in The Art Issue of Homes & Antiques magazine with a few of our original vintage posters on their Shop the Look page (Summer 2018 Interiors with Soul > Pin-up Power pp.6-7).

H&A ArtGuide Summer2018

“…Posters are important pieces of social history. Produced for a purpose – advertising or propaganda – they were early forms of mass communication, and the artists had to condense their messages into something meaningful, as well as visually powerful.

…Collectors focus on what they’re passionate about and usually come to posters for two reasons: they like the image, and the subject is something they can relate to personally. There are so many ways to collect – by subject, style, artist – with a price range to suit any budget.”

A True Gentleman: Remembering Theodore Ramos (1928-2018)

PA1700_1_mShortly after we moved into our gallery on the King’s Road, an elderly gentleman came in to marvel at the history and artistry of our original vintage posters. This charismatic gentleman was Theodore Ramos RA who lived nearby in the artists’ studios on Milman’s Street, and he soon became one of our regular visitors. He would often pop in and entertain us with stories about the people he painted, his fellow artists and his travels. We became friends, going out for dinner with him, exchanging books and visiting him at his studio.

A notable illustrator and portrait artist, Theo’s subjects include Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, and his paintings have been displayed in boardrooms, private homes and the National Portrait Gallery. During the 1950s-60s, he revolutionised the design of the Royal Academy’s exhibition posters to feature eye-catching artworks, rather than just text. Sadly Theo wasn’t able to fully recover from a stroke last year and he died here in Chelsea on 11 April. We have some of the posters Theo designed for the Royal Academy of Arts; one is framed and is on display at the front of our gallery, and they are all available to view on our website (click on the images for more information):

Spotlight on Original Vintage ROSPA Safety Posters

The British charity RoSPA – Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents – was formed in 1916 as the London Safety First Council (renamed RoSPA in 1941). The organisation has run a variety of successful campaigns over the last century addressing issues from road safety and safety at home to industrial and workplace safety.

Below are a few posters from our current collection of over 60 original vintage mid-century RoSPA posters that feature clever eye-catching designs by notable artists such as Pat Keely and Leonard Cusden. These posters were issued to help prevent accidents from drink driving, to demonstrate the importance of obeying the rules of the road and the dangers of being careless when using tools and machinery, and to provide advice on first aid and tips on avoiding accidents (click on the images for more information):

Vintage Posters – Spotlight on Australia

“Vintage holiday posters reveal how Victorians used to travel… Before modern-day Aussies were getting rowdy on Contiki tours and angling for the best Instagram pose, their mid-century forebears were encouraged to take a Kodak and explore their own backyards — often by rail. As the Great Depression eased, the 1930s fast became the golden age of travel as regional towns far and wide put their best foot forward to entice domestic and international tourists…”
