Expanding our inventory of vintage posters by top artists from the last decades of the 20th Century is an ongoing process here at Gallery 98. We are currently photographing and processing a large collection of posters. As a taste of what is to come, here are three favorites. Each is in excellent condition and suitable for framing.
Audrey Flack, Strawberry Tart Supreme (1974), poster for the exhibition “Woman and Art,” Suzanne Brown Gallery, 1981
Size: 23 x 23 inches
Audrey Flack was a leader of the first wave of photorealist artists that emerged at the end of the 1960s. The colorful and alluring subject matter displayed in this poster for the Woman and Art exhibition, is in bold contrast with the work of her male colleagues.
Curt Hoppe, Dreesen’s Market (East Hampton), Poster Featuring His Original Oil Painting, SIGNED, 1999
Size: 18 x 24 inches
Through most of the 1990s Curt Hoppe chronicled life in the Hamptons in large photorealist paintings. This poster was published by the now extinct Dressen’s, a market famous for its donuts, wide choice of newspapers, and the long lines of summer weekenders on Saturday mornings.
Jamie Reid (1947–2023)
Size: 39 x 26 inches
The passing of Jamie Reid last week was a reminder of the incredible furor that Punk and the Sex Pistols caused in England in the late 1970s. Reid provided the “ransom-note” style that helped launch the group and became the iconic look for all Punk visuals. The backside of this double-sided poster provides a retrospective look at Reid’s early work with text and images.
