A COLLECTOR'S DELIGHT
For Antonio Ruggerino collecting Original Vintage Posters has been a lifetime hobby. A 1906 masterpiece by famous poster artist Cappiello started his amazing journey into the discovery of this unique Parisian art form. Today Antonio is not only a collector but he also runs a gallery in the heart of Bondi Beach devoted to the Original Lithographic Poster. Dating back to the 1880’s Original Vintage Posters were the main form of advertising with the walls of cafes, subways and billboards covered with grand scale posters. Showing everything from champagne to olive oil, the posters turned the streets of Paris into a living art gallery. This major form of advertising progressed across Europe and influenced America. However this rare collectable never made an impact on Australia and now, 120 years after the style began, Antonio has brought this taste of European culture to the Sydney shores. With a collection spanning from the 1880’s to present day and over 150 different posters, Antonio is quickly becoming Australia’s doorway to an art form that until now has been relatively undiscovered.
HistoryOriginal Vintage Posters date back to 1880 and were the main form of advertising at the time. In France the café was the centre of life. The walls, subways and billboards were covered with grand scale advertising showing everything from champagne to biscuits, turning the streets of Paris into an art gallery. This major form of advertising progressed across Europe and influenced America and Russia. The vintage posters are now gracing walls like fine art and have come to be seen as artistic statements with the rarest one being worth as much as a one-bedroom Manhattan apartment.
