Spotlight on Mid-Century Posters

Mid-century refers to the twentieth century design period that influenced all aspects of art and design, including architecture, interiors and graphic design. Typical features of this modernist style include more open floor plans, simple and natural sculptural shapes, Scandinavian forms and forward thinking atomic space age themes to produce objects that would prove to be popular, comfortable and functional.

Many of the posters created during this period are colourful and fun, featuring iconic designs by notable artists with curved geometric shapes, repeating patterns and bold colours. Below are a few of the original vintage mid-century posters that we currently have in stock (click on the images for more information):

Spotlight on Art Nouveau Posters

PT1040_1_mArt Nouveau was an art movement developed from the 1890s to the 1910s, inspired by natural flowing curved lines, female forms and stylised botanical shapes.

This “New Art” movement influenced all aspects of applied art and design, including architecture, painting, graphic design, jewellery and metal work. The French name for this movement was also known as Secessionism and Jugendstil (among others).

A highly decorative style, Art Nouveau drew on nature and fantasy, as well as other developing movements of the time including the floral work of William Morris, the Arts and Crafts movement, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, French Rococo and Japanese art.PA1236_1_m

Notable poster artists and graphic designers from the Art Nouveau era include Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939), Jules Cheret (1836-1932), and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901). Their vibrant designs often incorporated free-spirited females of the optimistic Belle Epoque period; the ‘Golden Age’ before the outbreak of World War One. Art Nouveau paved the way for Art Deco and the later Modernism art movement.

A handful of our current stock of original antique and vintage Art Nouveau posters are featured below (click on the images for more information):

Visions of a New World: Rodchenko and Stepanova

To coincide with The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Art’s exhibition, At Home with Rodchenko and Stepanova (in Moscow until 8th March), and the V&A Museum’s Russian Avant Garde Theatre exhibition (in London until 15th March), here is a short introduction on these notable Russian artists with links to some of the books and magazines featuring their work that we currently have in stock:

Alexander Rodchenko (1891-1956) and Varvara Stepanova (1894-1958) met at the Kazan Art School in 1910 and later married. Rodchenko, who focused on photomontage in the 1920s, was one of the founders of Russian Constructivism. This was a form of modern art built on the foundations of Cubism and Futurism that aimed to encompass all aspects of everyday life from art and design to film and fashion, influencing later movements such as Bauhaus and Dadaism. Stepanova developed the ideals of this art form to concentrate on costume and set designs for theatre and working clothes for industry and sports.
