Seduced! Fans And The Art Of AdvertisingSeduced! Fans & the Art of Advertising presents a fascinating overview of the history of advertising fans, showing how commercial art - a dynamic, seductive art-form - emerged during the late nineteenth century to play a pivotal role in generating and sustaining a culture of consumption among the growing middle classes. Focusing on the interwar period and the aesthetics of Art Deco, the exhibition includes a colourful array of fans made to promote leisure activities such as travel, dining and shopping. Luxury brands are equally well represented with fans advertising champagne, perfume and haute- couture. Many of the fans exhibited feature designs by masters of commercial art including, Georges Barbier, Leonetto Cappiello and Rene Gruau, whose striking pochoir and chromolithographic prints evoke a remarkable age of decadence, glamour, exoticism and the birth of modern consumer culture.
