pa0267_1_m   pw0089_1_m   pt0091_1_m   pc0197_1_m

Our next evening talk will be on Soviet poster design, to coincide with Russian Art Week and Russian Film Week in London.

This talk will cover the period of dramatic change that Russia experienced in the 50 year period from 1890 to 1940. The profound shifts in the political and socio-economic structure of society will be linked to the imagery expressed in posters, from life in Imperial Russia under the Tsars to life in the Soviet Union under Stalin.

Wednesday 30 November, 7-8pm
Tickets: £5 (includes welcome drink). Places are limited. Tickets are available to purchase online at www.AntikBar.co.uk and at our gallery: AntikBar, 404 King’s Road, London SW10 0LJ

Let It Snow: Skiing and Winter Sports Poster Exhibition

ps0524_1_m   ps0566_1_m   ps0362_1_m   ps0356_1_m

We are holding an exhibition of original antique and vintage skiing and winter sport posters at our gallery from 1 November to 10 December.

These dynamic, glamorous and eye-catching posters were originally produced to entice holiday-makers and thrill-seekers to alpine resorts. Packed with decorative appeal and nostalgia for the Golden Age of travel, they are ideal for decorating chalets and provide a stunning reminder back home of a memorable ski trip.

Many of the early- to mid-century skiing and winter sports posters feature strong images that were designed by notable artists of the time and the rarity of those that have survived makes them highly collectible and a good investment.

Address: AntikBar, 404 King’s Road, London SW10 0LJ
Opening Hours: Monday-Friday 11am-7pm; Saturday 11am-6pm (by appointment only on Sundays and Bank Holidays) / please visit our website for holiday closure notifications. Free entry. Catalogue: £10

In the Spotlight – Smirnoff “The Effect is Shattering”

smirnoff-accountancy  These original vintage Smirnoff advertising posters are part of the 1970s campaign by the London-based Young and Rubican agency, which aimed to promote thesmirnoff-friends vodka as a way to achieve glamour and excitement as an escape from the humdrum of daily life. (To emphasise the campaign’s risky innuendos, Avocado Sweet observes: “Substitute the word ‘heroin’  for ‘Smirnoff’ and it still makes sense.”)

 
The advertising campaign proved to be a great success for the company, resulting in vodka becoming so chic that it overtook gin in popularity and saw Smirnoff’s sales triple. In 1976 the campaign ended, following the tightening of rules on alcohol advertising led by the government and the Advertising smirnoff-kama-sutraStandards Authorities in 1975.
 

These posters are all available at starting prices of £10 at our Original Vintage Poster Auction this Saturday (8 October). Click here for more information with links to view our catalogue and register to bid via LiveAuctioneers or The Saleroom.

The American Way – US Propaganda Posters

pp0313_1_m  Propaganda posters play an important part in reaching out to the population during both times of war and peace, from appealing to the nation’s sense of patriotism during war to providing a source of motivation in the workplace. As America gears up to election day, here are a few of the American propaganda and motivational posters from the 1900s-1960s listed on our website:
