OUR HISTORY AND PERSPECTIVES

 

   After a long time spent looking all around the world for vintage posters, my son Andrea and I decided to open a shop window in the cool downtown district of Isola-Garibaldi. Our aim is not only to sell the posters of that vaste collection, but also to create a meeting point for people who love original posters. We both hope that an interest in these fascinating artworks could be aroused also in Italy, as it has already occurred in others countries like US and France. Opinions and suggestions are welcome, so don't hesitate to contact us !

    With our best

    Edoardo and Andrea Re

 

  WHAT'IS AN "ORIGINAL  POSTER"  ?

We agree with the following statement of Jack Rennert that could be considered the patriarch of our big poster collectors family:   

“An original poster is the very first printing of the image, the one that was intended to go on a wall as an advertisement. Subsequent printings carry no intrinsic value outside of the decorative sphere.”

Another inetresting contribution on the problem of fake posters comes from a U.S. website:

"A poster that is 30 years old means the paper has aged, even if rolled up, the edges or borders are a little browned by the light. Be more wary of linen backed posters as they may have been deliberately linen backed to hide theirs spanking white backsides. The printers details are generally poorly reproduced, often or not even present. And generally the quality of the impression leaves something to be desired. The large Tattinger, Dutch version, is missing some of the printers details and it is a few tones lighter as it is a photo derivative of the earlier original. I think it is fair to say that the small version is just a reproduction. Fortunately there are very few deliberate copies of large format posters. The small format Chanel No 5 Warhol has long gone, the copies now on the market are pretty poor quality. No one has attempted to copy the large bus stop format."

THE COLLAGE FROM PICASSO TILL THE PRESENT DAYS

The collage technique is wellknown. A lot of artists used for their collages old schratched advertising posters. We should remember the Dada group, Picasso, Rauschenberg and Mimmo Rotella.  These authors give the posters a new life as true artworks.
