There is something quite whimsical yet sentimental about a vintage poster. Often, the shear nature of their age means they have a history, that they've been admired, perhaps even loved before. And quite possibly, they've found themselves in several locations; restaurants, retail spaces, public homes and so on. But, unlike other art forms, as they are fundamentally pieces of advertising, there is always something fun, carefree, a playful element and even something mischievous about a vintage poster.
Hilgar is inheriting this much loved vintage poster from our home. The colours, the glint in the man's eyes and of course that cute scruffy dog will be missed but hopefully enjoyed by many others over the coming years.
For information and a great selection of authentic vintage posters go to Galerie Montmarte.
