Today in History: Raymond Savignac born in 1907

We have always been fascinated with the poster art by Raymond Savignac (1907 – 2002). The French artist began his career in 1935 at the Alliance Graphique under the supervision of Cassandre. He gained fame in 1949 with the publication of his first major poster, Mon Savon. As he states in his autobiography: “I was born at the age of 41, weaned on the udder of the Monsavon cow.” Savignac’s strength was combining a complex concept in a simple design, combined with humor. He is said to be among France’s most influential poster artists of the past fifty years.

History: Heinrich Campendonk born in 1889

Today in History: Heinrich Campendonk born in 1889

The German-born painter and graphic designer (who later became a Naturalized Dutch citizen) was born on November 3 and we like to take this opportunity to promote his poster “Die Farbe” which we are offering in our poster auction tomorrow. “Die Farbe” is an exceptionally rare, important poster advertising an exhibition devoted to ‘color.’ Printed in black-and-white, the rainbow and highlighted green area are all hand-tinted. The show itself featured some of the most important avant-garde artists of the era, including Kandinsky, Marc, Delaunay, Macke, Braque, Picasso, Klee, Gris, Naun, and Nolde. Interestingly, a list of the honorariums paid to the participants reveals that Campendonk received 560 marks for his contributions (which included this poster), while Kandinsky received a mere 200.

Today in History: Donald Brun born in 1909

Happy Birthday, Donald Brun! The Swiss graphic designer would have turned 109 today. Brun was born in Basel in 1909. During his apprenticeship as a graphic illustrator in the late 1920s, Brun celebrated his first successes as a poster artist when he won a Basel poster competition for “baths” in 1928. Between the 1930s and 1970s, Brun created hundreds of poster designs, mainly for consumer goods. Among his clients were such renowned companies as Bata, Bell, Gauloise, Persil or Swissair. His posters are marked by a subtle sense of humor and solid craftsmanship. In 1952, Brun became co-founder of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI). He passed away in Clarens in 1999.

Today is National Cat Day

Today is National Cat Day

National Cat Day was initiated by Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate, Colleen Paige, in 2005 to make the public recognize the enormous number of cats that need rescuing. They were first domesticated in the Middle East’s Fertile Crescent as early as 12,000 years ago. When humans relied on hunting as their main source of food, dogs were most useful – but when the first agricultural societies emerged, cats became invaluable. Domesticated cats became responsible for keeping grain stores free of mice and other rodents. Today, cats can be found in 34% of American households, making them the most popular house pet in the United States.
