The art gallery of the street: pictorial posters at the turn of the 20th century

V&A Curator, Catherine Flood, discusses the rise of full colour pictorial posters and their sensory impact on urban space

From the suffragettes to Selfridges, advertisers were exploring new ways to claim a visual identity and presence within London in the early years of the 20th century. Catherine Flood, curator at the V&A, discusses the rise of full colour pictorial posters and their sensory impact on urban space. From posters by Toulouse Lautrec and Pierre Bonnard to those by the Beggarstaffs and John Hassall, she looks at the British experience of the international 'poster craze' and explores the context of the Underground's early and progressive patronage of poster art.
