Description

Advertising poster art began during the late 1800s when artists such as Jules Cheret and Marcello Dudovich emerged onto the scene, combining popular graphic design, and the dominant styles of the day. The profession of graphic designer has continued to evolve to this day, and includes artists such as Roberto Sambonet, Bruno Munari, Max Huber, and Andy Warhol.Filled with vibrant advertisements and clear, full-color photographs, Advertising & Art shows how the boundaries between fine art and advertising have disappeared. This is a true gem for every collector, art dealer, student, and professional alike interested in advertising and design.show more

Review quote

."..whatever your stance on artistic purity and the commerical degradation of art, this is a visually delicious offering, more nutritional than eye candy." "The Morning News" "Today's fast-paced, television-driven advertising world no longer places a priority on print campaigns, but "Advertising and Art" keeps its priorities straight and provides a straightforward assessment of the long, strange trip advertising art has taken in finding a voice of its own." Artblogbybob.com "Valuable content...Illustrators, art dealers and collectors will undoubtedly enjoy this text." "Dynamic Graphics Magazine" "In addition to nearly 200 well-produced and selected images that exhibit the progression of commercial graphics, there are seven essays by various experts that explicate elements of graphic-arts history. In any case, whatever your stance on artistic purity and the commercial degradation of art, this is a visually delicious offering, more nutritional than eye candy." IdentityTheory.comshow more
