Featuring a collection of rare original vintage posters, “The Art of the Poster” is presented by renowned Hong Kong-based vintage poster dealer, Picture This Gallery.

Spanning themes from tourism to food, and entertainment to promotional advertisements, this exhibition provides deep insights into the retro design, popular culture and the trends of the times. Reflecting the changing culture of the times, original poster art captures the essence of bygone eras, uses large and bold graphic art, and for many highlight posters remains synonymous with great art deco design.

Many leading poster designers represented in this exhibition includes Adolphe Cassandre, Leonetto Cappiello, Jean d’Ylen, Pierre Fix-Masseau and Paul Colin from the early years of the 20th century, and the very best of mid 20th century poster artists such as Bernard Villemot, Raymond Savignac, Lucien Boucher and Hervé Morvin.
