1924 Print Theophile Alexandre Steinlen Poster Art Derby Day Ball Children WWI


"Derby Day Ball."

This is an original 1924 halftone print of a poster, designed by Théophile Alexandre Steinlen to advertise the Derby Day Ball on 31 May 1922 at the Hyde Park Hotel, a benefit for the Pauvres de la Société Francaise de Bienfaisance. (Please note: As would be expected with an original halftone print, there is printing on the reverse of this item.)

Period Paper is pleased to offer a rare and exceptional "mini poster" collection of some of the finest examples of poster advertising art of the late 19th and early 20th century. The collection includes color prints, black and white halftone prints, and several lithographs. Although as "mini posters" they are but a fraction of the size of the original, their powerful graphic designs combined with a succinct advertising message make them highly collectible pieces for the popular culture historian, the poster art collector, or those interested in the history of poster design. Please note: these items are from 1924 and are not modern reproductions, copies, or digital prints.
