“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…

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…”

News Bite: our recent Facebook slideshows

Here’s a quick look at a couple of slideshows featured on our Facebook page this week (for more images, slideshows and updates, “like” our page at www.facebook.com/antikbar.co.uk):

Happy 125th Birthday to the Eiffel Tower…!

The iconic Eiffel Tower was designed by Maurice Koechlin and Emile Nouguier for the 1889 Exposition Universelle (World’s Fair). It was built on the Champ de Mars in Paris between 1887-1889 and opened on 31 March 1889 with a permit initially for 20 years (until 1909). This grand entrance arch for the Fair was named after Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. As a valuable asset for communication, the Eiffel Tower was not dismantled and it has become one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world. At 324m tall, it was the tallest man-made structure at the time (until 1930); now it is the tenth tallest lattice tower the world (the Tokyo SkyTree currently holds the number one position at 634m tall). “Joyeux Anniversaire!”

“The unveiling of the Le Mans 24-Hours poster is always an eagerly-awaited event by the fans… This poster defines an area of rich expression aimed at a wide-ranging public by projecting them into a powerful and attractive imaginary environment: Pride of place goes to the new prototypes launched in 2014 which, propelled by luminous, electric colours, leap out of the poster; A cleaner and less figurative universe than in the past, which fits perfectly with the new slogan – A new era dawns!; The integration of spectators of all ages whose faces show the expressions of awe and the incredible emotions experienced…” Read the full news article at News via http://www.24h-lemans.com/en/news/the-2014-le-mans-24-hours-poste-unveiled-in-geneva-_2_2_1746_14271.html
