I provide advice on creating collections and conduct searches for particular posters that are of interest to my clients. We are also available to give educational art history talks and organise special exhibitions.
Poster values have been steadily increasing year-on-year and quality pieces are very much in demand. Several auction houses, such as Christie's and Bloomsbury, conduct specialised poster sales during the year. The most influential factors are rarity (how many are known or thought to have survived), the artist or designer, subject, style, period and condition. Other factors can also affect the price, such as popularity. At the moment, for example, skiing posters are in high demand, especially for Swiss resorts; this increased popularity has pushed up the prices for skiing posters across the board.
Please contact us or visit us at our gallery for more information and to sign up for our next Introduction to Collecting Posters talk (click here for our list of upcoming talks, auctions and other events). We are giving a talk at The Lecture Club in London on Tuesday 9 May; please click here to register for this event.
Individual and Corporate Gifts
Posters make an ideal personal present for a friend or client. Being more topical than paintings, they carry messages that strike a more intimate note with an individual hobby, time period, travel or subject of a person’s work and other interests. Given the wide variety of subjects covered by poster art, it is always possible to choose a present to match a special occasion or event. We also offer gift vouchers in denominations of £50 and £100.
