International Poster Gallery Presents “Winter Wanderlust” 19th Annual Holiday Poster Show December 1 International Poster Gallery proudly presents Winter Wanderlust, the gallery’s 19th annual holiday poster show featuring travel posters for exotic locales in addition to a selection of general works b
reds, yellows and blues in a highly playful style.
While Winter Wanderlust focuses primarily on vintage travel posters, the show also includes a variety of works in other categories. Jean d’Ylen’s 1925 poster for Sandeman port wine is a fine example. Founded in 1790, Sandeman expanded on an international scale thanks to creative advertising like d’Ylen’s, and is still a prestigious brand today. His dreamlike poster portrays a leaping centaur, a bottle of Sandeman port in each hand, with a woman draped across his back. Her dress and hair, in striking green and red, respectively, cast a flash of contrasting color across the design’s otherwise monochromatic palette, making this one of d’Ylen’s most eye-catching and bewitching creations.
“Winter Wanderlust has given us the chance to showcase some new and extraordinary additions to our collection,” comments International Poster Gallery owner Jim Lapides. “We also have a broad selection of pieces for those looking to chip away at their holiday shopping lists. From full sized posters to more affordable small graphics and luggage labels, these are sure to be unique and unforgettable gifts.”
