Ansel AdamsAnsel Adams was a renowned American photographer and environmentalist who specialised in nature and landscape scenes. He is best known for his evocative images of the rugged and otherworldly American West, all captured in moody black and white.
WPAThe Works Progress Administration (WPA) was a federally-funded programme launched as part of the 1930s New Deal in the USA - an initiative to refloat the economy following the Great Depression and get people back to work on state projects. The WPA included a scheme to employ out-of-work artists to produce posters for everything from public information campaigns to theatre bills. The look and style of these works has become a sought-after artistic genre in its own right, available here in canvas print form.
AdvertisementsIn the days before television and the internet, advertising relied on the visual arts. Our outstanding collection of vintage canvas wall prints includes more than 100 advertisements which act as a time capsule looking back a century. Grab yourself a slice of history with the classic Uncle Sam and Lord Kitchener army recruitment posters, or own a piece of tourist industry memorabilia with destination adverts from the days when travelling abroad meant embarking by ship.
