Featured:
Smirnoff “The Effect is Shattering”

smirnoff-accountancy smirnoff-friends smirnoff-kama-sutra 

 

 

 

These original vintage Smirnoff advertising posters are part of the 1970s campaign by the London-based Young and Rubican agency, which aimed to promote the 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 the rules on alcohol advertising led by the government and the Advertising Standards Authorities in 1975.

These posters are all available in our Vintage Poster Auction on Saturday 3 August. Click here for more information with links to view our catalogue and register to bid via Live Auctioneers, The Saleroom or Invaluable.

100 Year Anniversary of the 1917 October Revolution in Posters

PC0197_1_mThe twentieth century was shaped by several key global events. One of them – the 1917 October Revolution in Russia – led to the creation of a completely new social structure, government and system of beliefs. The events of the Russian Revolution have been described in many books and portrayed in films but very few documents that bear true witness to this era have managed to carry through the essence of the dramatic changes and immense struggle between the old and the new to today. Posters are one of the few documents that have survived as silent visual yet very vocal witnesses to the events that tore the country in half and led to the formation of the USSR (the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics also known as the Soviet Union – Союз Советских Социалистических Республик or СССР). Historic memorabilia from that time is very rare as paper was scarce and, as such, these original posters from the period are highly collectable.

After the October Revolution in 1917, the Bolshevik government was faced with the task of swaying a largely illiterate population to its side in the resulting Russian Civil War and beyond. Posters proved to be an ideal medium to deliver their message using bold and striking designs with minimum text. The imagery clearly distinguished the ‘bad guys’ from the ‘good guys’ and instructed the people on what to do and how to fight the enemy. As the country established itself, poster art grew more sophisticated and the government further developed this means of propaganda art and the print runs increased. Due to this proven effectiveness, the Soviet Union became one of the few countries where artists PP0399_1_mwere specifically trained as poster designers.

The unique combination of striking artwork, powerful imagery and important social history makes these posters of great interest to collectors. A growth in nostalgia and reconciliation with the country’s past is resulting in more demand for high-end posters from the Soviet Union’s early 1917-1939 period as well as the more affordable period from the 1960s to the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s.

A few of our original vintage Soviet posters will be displayed in our gallery from 25 October to 7 November for this centenary and all are available to view online at www.AntikBar.co.uk and at our gallery on request.

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.

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…

CM0021_1_m  Gustav Klucis…was a master of photomontage; his posters were required to be highly persuasive, meaning the images he produced have a particularly powerful visual impact.

PW0119_1_m  Abram Games is perhaps Britain’s best known post-war graphic designer, and is known for his witty and conceptual posters. Games…was able to communicate and resonate with the public.

PT0680_1_m 

PC0362_1_m  Constructivist Russian cinema posters are highly collectable for their innovative and experimental graphics…The Stenberg Brothers were two of the most prolific Russian film poster designers…creating graphics that became a unique art form in themselves. Through innovative techniques such as photomontage and via experimentations with typography, colour, scale and repetition, they produced imaginative, surreal and powerful imagery…”
