Vintage Posters & Art Work
At the Perfect Provenance, we are proud to feature a variety of vintage posters, photography, sculpture and art. We work with a number of respected dealers on each of our exhibitions.
In 1860s Paris, the now famous French poster was born when artist Jules Cheret invented the color technique of lithography that would bring the sights and smells of Paris to life. Soon, Cheret’s work was posted throughout the city, becoming a symbol of one of the art world’s most important innovations. As the posters gained in popularity decade after decade, each generation and artistic movement spread their message through the art form, from the Belle Epoque and Art Deco, to the two World Wars, as well as the Cubists and modern advertising executives.
