The Visual Impact of Nourishment in Vintage Posters

Summer Exhibition at AntikBar

Nourishment in the form of food and drink products is widely represented in original vintage posters in various capacities, from advertising specific brands and promoting a healthy lifestyle to improving agricultural production, encouraging self-sufficiency and reducing waste.

The different customs, traditions and practices of consumption in social communities are closely connected with the daily life of each person. The theme of nourishment can be a powerful tool that has an active influence on the individual consumer, which is why there is such a variety of creativity and knowledge conveyed in food and drink posters around the world.

These original posters were designed by an artist (or group of artists) for a particular purpose, intended for display in a public place. In the days before television and modern social media, posters were the only way to reach a mass audience and they were used extensively for brand advertising and for public education and propaganda.

Artists were challenged to condense a message into a single graphic form that would stand out on the wall and grab the attention of passers-by to attract new customers and deliver the message in the most effective way. Being very topical, posters absorbed and reflected the prevailing and changing art styles, fashions and culture of their era.

This virtual and gallery exhibition at AntikBar, held as part of KCAW22, showcases food and drink posters from different countries worldwide from the late 1800s through to the early 2000s, looking at them in an artistic and design point of view and as an insight into the social history of the period.

Post-Auction News:

Collector’s old posters have never lost appeal: “It’s hard not to be drawn to vintage posters of St Andrews, especially the stunner painted by Gilbert Dunlop for British Rail in the 1950s. A good example appeared at a recent online sale organised by AntikBar Original Vintage Posters of London… Estimated at £375-750, sold for £800.” (The Courier, Angus & Dundee)
