The Currier explains, "Edward Penfield created his first art poster 120 years ago to announce the April 1893 issue of Harper’s monthly magazine. Magazine and book publishers rushed to follow Harper’s lead producing a flood of bold and dazzling placards to announce their latest offerings. These artful, witty, often humorous graphic images inspired the poster mania that gripped the nation in the mid-1890s. The eager public clamored to collect, trade, display and critique the dramatic, ever changing designs. Artists became famous overnight for their personal styles, and they competed in poster competitions. One of America’s most popular artists of the early twentieth century—Maxfield Parrish—first emerged as an award winning poster designer and is represented in the exhibition by several works, including two he did for the state of New Hampshire...
This selection of more than 90 posters from the Currier’s collection includes some of the most popular and sought after posters from the 1890s. Many are from the collection of Manchester resident Orien Dodge, who gave the Currier Museum 280 original posters in 1943."
