An array of rarely displayed commercial posters from the 1890s through the turn of the 21st century will adorn the Delaware College of Art and Design’s Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery as the site’s final exhibition of 2017.

The large-scale pieces making up “The Big Picture: Illustration Art in the Printed Poster” encompass a range of subjects, artists, printing methods and styles. Curated by David Pollack of David Pollack Vintage Posters (www.dpvintageposters.com), the show includes work by some of poster illustration’s greatest masters, including Frank Brangwyn, Ben Shahn, Bernard Villemot, Roy Besser and Tomi Ungerer. Often crossing the border between fine and commercial art, this work didn’t merely sell a product – it also stood as visually powerful imagery worthy of preserving and displaying as an art form in and of itself.
