History Of Posters Prints
Modern poster prints originated in 1870, when the development of color lithography enabled people to easily produce images on a mass scale. Posters usually depicted images and text concerning politics or advertisements for consumer goods and events. By 1900, various French artists associated with the Art Nouveau style, including Eugene Grasset and Alphonse Mucha, helped elevate the craft to the level of fine art. Many artists today reproduce their two-dimensional works as fine art posters through a variety of printing techniques. Many posters are printed in limited editions, by hand, and on different kinds of papers. Saatchi Art keeps with inkjet Giclée printing technology to produce high quality resolution prints. These posters are only available if the pixel size and aspect ratio of the artist’s image are suitable for the chosen poster size. These prints are produced on fine art print paper with archival pigmented inks designed to resist weathering and fading. The paper itself has a matte, natural white finish and a soft, absorbent surface akin to that of etching and watercolor papers.
Decorating With Posters Prints
If your living space or furnishings are subject to change in the near future, decorating with poster prints is an affordable and practical option for adding beauty and interest to your entire home. You may choose to create a different theme for each room by grouping together art print posters of a similar style, subject matter, or color palette. For example, a bedroom may feature black and white photo posters, while the kitchen may showcase fine art posters of paintings featuring food and drink. If you have a favorite decorative object, for example a cushion or vase, you can use its pattern (if any) and color palette to help dictate the type of artwork you’d like to hang within that room. The cut and style of the frame not only showcases the print, but it can also help it harmonize with the existing furniture and objects within the space.
