USSR: Homeland of the First Cosmonaut

The Space Race between the Soviet Union and the United States of America during the Cold War was a period of symbolic superiority that led to many pioneering technological advances. In 1957, the USSR was the first country to launch an artificial satellite – Sputnik – into outer space and the first dog into space – Laika – on board Sputnik 2.

PT0719_1_m

Four years later, on 12 April 1961, a Russian pilot and cosmonaut – Yuri Gagarin – became the first man in space, completing an orbit of the earth on board the Vostok 1 spacecraft. Gagarin was awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union and became an international celebrity. A new commemorative day was also established – Cosmonautics Day – celebrated every year in Russia on 12 April (now recognised as the International Day of Human Space Flight by the United Nations). In 1963, Russia launched the first woman into space – Valentina Tereshkova – on board Vostok 6.

The Science Museum in London is currently hosting a unique exhibition – Cosmonauts: Birth of the Space Age – featuring a collection of spacecraft, memorabilia, stories and posters showing “the dramatic story of how Russia turned the dream of space travel into a reality” (18/9/2015-13/3/2016).

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:

Slideshow – Collecting Guide: 10 Poster Designers

Our recent slideshow featuring a few of our original vintage posters and publications by designers profiled by Sophie Churcher for Christie’s South Kensington (click here to read the full article and click on the image links below for more information): 

“The focus for collectors of posters is very often subject matter. The subject of a work is key to its ability to connect with the viewer and in turn increase its value. Having said that there are masters of poster design as there are of art and these artists play an important role in shaping the market for collectable pieces.

PT0130_1_m French graphic designer Jean Carlu is renowned for the distinctive, streamlined economy of form in his images, emphasising the new machine age of the early 20th century…

PA0759_1_m A.M. Cassandre produced an oeuvre of travel-related lithographic posters that are now counted among the most iconic and influential Art Deco designs in the history of the medium… Taking inspiration from contemporary avant-garde movements in art, namely Bauhaus, Cubism and Futurism, Cassandre…employed the use of unadorned linear and streamlined forms to reflect the speed and dynamism of his era.

PS0317_1_m  PT0389_1_m

PT0543_1_m  PA0823_1_m

PT0386_1_m  Edward McKnight Kauffer…became one of this country’s most highly influential poster artists throughout the first half of the 20th century. Starting his career in painting, he soon embraced graphic design in poster art as a burgeoning tool of communication in the modern age. He was particularly known for his work for London Underground as well as Shell Mex and B.P. Ltd…

Travel Back in Time: Come Fly With Me

PA0495_1_m  The romantic notion and thrill of travelling by plane may be over for most of us but the allure is captured in many of the old advertising posters. This “then and now” look at air travel compares the messages and styles of some of our original vintage airline posters with some from the same companies today to show how print-based advertising has changed over the years.

American-6  “The legend is back” – to evoke a feeling of nostalgia, American Airlines recently launched an advertising campaign using well-known celebrities from the 1950s and today:

American-1

American-3  American-4

…compared with these posters advertising travel to Paris (1950s) and Australia (1970s) by American Airlines:

PT0294_1_m  PT0152_1_m

The messages are clear – this trend of combining a look to the past as well as future hope can been seen in United’s return to its “fly the friendly skies” slogan, Aeroflot’s upgrade to glamour through its ranking as “Europe’s most elegant cabin crew” in 2013 and LOT’s recent campaign as “the most modern airline in Europe”:

PA0435_1_m

PA0434_1_m  (1950s)

…from this amusing cartoon style ad, “if only I flew by LOT” (1958), to this striking image and bold statement:

PA0243_1_m ???????????????????????????????

Meanwhile, SAS (Scandinavian Airlines System) and KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines) have shifted up a couple of technological notches from more traditional art and photography during the 1950s and 1960s to embrace today’s digital age:

“The Gay Gateway” – active both on social media and as a supporter of the LGBT community, KLM created an online game in 2014 that offered players a chance to win two economy comfort flights. In 2010 their play-to-win campaign offered flights to “the world’s proudest festivals” as part of its sponsorship of Sweden’s Stockholm Gay Life Award. Turn back the clock half a century to perhaps a different meaning and we have an SAS stewardess serving customers Copenhagen, Europe’s Gay Gateway, on a dish:

KLMeconomy_comfy_klm_01

  PT0488_1_m

Major events have also been used to entice people to show their support of their country by flying with their national carrier. The recent Summer Olympics in London (2012) and Winter Olympics in Sochi (2014) brought us some creative advertising posters from companies such as KLM and Austrian Airlines that contrast, for example, with this more traditional mid-century artistic depiction of Paris:

AustrianAnna Netrebko Austrian Airlines

PT0296_1_m  (1960s)

Sign of the times – you may be wondering by now why we’ve chosen only a small selection of airlines when we’ve got some great BOAC, Swissair, TWA etc. posters listed on our website. This is because we’ve remained focused on airlines that are still in existence today for a more direct comparison. However, we feel we can make an exception for Dobrolet, a Russian airline founded in 1923 that was consolidated with other Soviet aviation organisations to become Aeroflot in 1932. Earlier this year, the company was relaunched as Aeroflot’s low-cost carrier but a notice on their website currently states that their flights are currently suspended due to recent EU sanctions:

Spotlight on the Stenberg Brothers

PC0362_1_m

Vladimir (1899-1982) and Georgii (1900-1933) Stenberg rank amongst the most notable Soviet Constructivist artists and graphic designers of the early 20th century.

Both brothers were born in Moscow to a Swedish father and Russian mother and both studied engineering before attending the Stroganov School of Applied Art in Moscow and Free Studios. They produced their first works of art in 1918 and co-founded the OBMOKhU (Society of Young Artists) in 1919, exhibiting with fellow Constructivist artists from 1919-1923, and were members of the INKhUK (the short-lived Institute of Artistic Culture) from 1921-1924.

Now firmly established in the avant-garde art world, they went on to experiment in different media, from theatre sets and costume design to sculpture. It was, however, their revolutionary approach to movie poster design that was to set them apart from their contemporaries. Pulling together their artistic experience and knowledge of film theory, the movie posters produced by the Stenberg Brothers during the 1920-30s displayed an innovative use of perspective, geometry, typography and colour to convey a dynamic sense of movement and energetic depth.

Here is our current collection of original vintage booklets and posters featuring artwork by the Stenberg Brothers:

Battleship Potemkin

PC0359_1_m

This stunning and rare Battleship Potemkin poster by the Stenberg Brothers is considered to be one of the greatest movie posters of all time. The exceptionally bold and powerful avant-garde poster design was produced to promote Sergei Eisenstein’s epic propaganda film depicting the historical 1905 naval mutiny in Odessa by the crew of Battleship Potemkin against the Tsarist officers. This pioneering silent movie is consistently voted as one of the greatest films, primarily due to Eisenstein’s use of montage and experimental film editing to create a dramatic portrayal of the events for maximum emotional effect from the audience.

The Stenberg’s creative use of vivid colours, geometry and perspective can be clearly seen to full graphic effect in this poster, complementing the movie’s sense of struggle and revolutionary air of change. As ground-breaking propaganda tools, both the movie and poster showcase an age of heavy industrialisation and move towards more modern warfare, as well as emphasising the growing unrest during this period between the ruling Tsarist elite (the officer falling overboard) and the ordinary citizen (the able-seaman standing on one of the guns). The enduring success of this poster lies in its ability to provide the viewer today with as rich and powerful an emotion through its expressive use of graphic language as the day it was originally displayed to attract the attention of a widely illiterate population almost a century ago.

Click here to watch the film via YouTube with English subtitles and search under Bronenosets Potyomkin / Броненосец Потемкин for more information.

Following his brother’s untimely death, Vladimir Stenberg continued to work as an artist and graphic designer (he was also selected to organise the 1947 May Day display in Moscow’s Red Square), but he was unable to surpass the success the brothers achieved as a team during the 1920s and early 1930s.

AntikBar in the news this week:

AntikBar‘s original vintage posters have been featured in the news twice this week, by the Financial Times and by Shropshire Woman:

PT0429_1_m   “Head-turning images, from Alpine slopes to Soviet-era Russia” – AntikBar featured by the Financial Times, How to Spend It, on their E-cquisitions page (Ming Liu, 22/5/2014):

Browse online poster gallery AntikBar, and the abundance of Soviet-era posters immediately grabs the attention. “They’re mainly from the 1920s and 1930s and from my personal collection,” says founder Kirill Kalinin, the economist-turned-dealer who launched AntikBar in 2011.

These Russian works account for 20 per cent of the more than 1,500 posters available on the site – the remainder take in a vast array of countries, styles and categories. Although the site specialises in posters, books and magazines, maps and prints are also for sale. A navigation bar allows users to search by date – the oldest item is a map of the Moscow Kremlin from 1686 and the most recent are from 2010. However, the bulk of the stock, says Kalinin, is from the 1930s to 1950s.

PT0367_1_m   PA0659_1_m

Categories include cinema, automobiles, war and sport, with the most popular being travel (which includes a 1970s drawing of the Alps by Salvador Dalí, £150, and a 1950s picture of Helsinki, £525) and advertising (a poster for the OBM furniture store in Rouen is £950, while a 1950s pin-up-style Philips Autoradio ad by French artist R Jeleng is £575).

Skiing posters in particular are highly sought after, says Kalinin, adding: “They are hard to come by and prices are going up year on year.” In the end, however, it’s about how a piece speaks to a buyer. “These works offer a strong emotional connection,” he says. “One gentleman bought an American Graffiti poster, as it was the first film he saw in a cinema with his father.”

AntikBar’s works are guaranteed originals – the site is a member of the US-based International Vintage Poster Dealers’ Association, as well as the Association of Art & Antiques Dealers (LAPADA), which has a strict code of practice and will intervene in the case of a dispute. In addition to offering advice for collectors and a search-on-demand service, AntikBar can help buyers find something specific, as Kalinin recently did for a client looking for South African posters. The site also works with a California-based restoration company to address colour loss, tears and stains.

“These posters mainly date back to a time pre-TV,” says Kalinin. “They were a way to reach a mass audience and designed to make you stop, look and remember. Today, they have become an alternative to modern art and are ideal for those wanting a bright, bold statement for their walls.”

PA0541_1_m   “Feeling Groovy” – AntikBar featured by the Shropshire County Woman & Home magazine, in their Interiors Guide (page 37, issue June 2014):

They say that if you remember the 60s, you weren’t there. So if, for whatever reason, you missed it the first time round, why not bring a little Swinging 60s style into your home?

It seems many of us are nostalgic for those days when life was a gas and our footballers and pop stars ruled the world. The popular TV show Mad Men has also been helping us dig 60s style. In fact acclaimed designer Wayne Hemingway has been drafted in to replicate the bold aesthetic of Don Draper’s apartment at London’s former 2012 Athletes’ Village, which is being reinvented as private rental homes.

“Vintage is about looking at timeless elements of design and finding and creating an enduring style.”

…get with the In Crowd – you’ll have a blast!

ShropshireCountyWoman&Home

Original vintage posters add authenticity to a 60s style interior and are also highly collectible. AntikBar specialises in original vintage posters covering a variety of subjects – travel, advertising, sport, cinema, war and propaganda – mainly dating from the late 1890s to the 1970s.
