Original Antique Posters: Celebrating 100+ Years of Poster Design

Posters have been the broad disseminator of ideas and images that have BR0008_1_mreflected social and cultural changes over the course of history. Given their ease of display on walls and high visibility, posters deliver their messages to the masses in the most effective way. The discovery of colour lithography in the late 1700s/early 1800s was one of the major developments that changed poster design. This technology needed an artist who understood the intricacies of colour balance to develop the poster as an art form: Jules Cheret (1836-1932) was able to combine his artistic talent with his knowledge of lithography and is widely regarded as the father of poster art.

PS0343_1_mCheret ingeniously combined modern British printing press machines with a clean-cut approach to colours used in traditional Japanese woodblocks to print more cost effective posters that were bolder and boasted clear and well defined images. A number of notable artists, such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901), followed his example in experimenting with new printing technologies and, by the late 1800s, posters were transformed into a recognisable art form and quickly became collector’s items.

Poster enthusiasts would venture out at night with damp sponges to remove the latest artwork by Cheret or Toulouse-Lautrec from the walls. PA0725_1_m (1)Poster exhibitions were held practically every year that further revealed the beauty of this new emerging art form to the public and influenced both advertisers and artists.

Being very topical, posters evoke the styles of the era and have very often survived as the best examples of art movements such as Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Constructivism. To celebrate over 100 years of poster design, here is our current collection of original antique posters dating from the 1890s to mid-1910s:

Summer of Sport 2012: The Olympic Games

   In celebration of the upcoming 2012 London Olympics, here’s a quick look at past Olympic Games and other sporting events in original vintage posters:

The 1972 Munich Olympics set a high standard aimed to “represent the intertwining of sports and art worldwide” with a series of posters by various popular artists of the period (Peter Phillips, Horst Antes, Otl Aicher, David Hockney among others) commissioned to design posters in Germany for their advertising campaign.

       
Munich Olympics – Athletics, designed by Peter Phillips; 1972 Olympic Games Munich, designed by Horst Antes

            
Munich Olympics (equestrian), designed by Garry Cranham; Munich Olympics – Sailing, designed by P. Cornelius; Munich Olympics – Swimming, based on a photo by Herbert Graaf

Aside from the poster artwork for the 1972 Munich Olympics, other Olympic Games and Olympic-related sporting events have also provided some fantastic designs, including:

       
Austrian Olympic Fund 1936, designed by Schroffner; XVII Rome Olympic Games 1960 – Historic Games, designed by A. Alessandrini

       
Olympic Spring 1965, designed by V. Volikov; Mexico Olympic Games, 1968

…and let’s not forget the Winter Olympics:

       
Olympic Winter Games Innsbruck 1964, designed by Fred Lindholm; Grenoble Olympic Games 1968, designed by Alain Perceval

Wishing all the competitors the best of luck, let’s end this short online exhibition of original vintage posters with the inspirational words of the Olympic Motto:

“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
