The mission of this site is to provide a high quality view to often overlooked art from the past via a virtual art museum with a focus on commercial art from the 19th to mid 20th century. With the accelerated development of cheaper and better quality printing processes during this timeframe, inexpensive print media came within the reach of the masses. Talented artists and printers pushed the envelope in different printing processes such as lithography and developed ever-improving techniques. Distinct styles emerged, which popularized different print media such as posters, post cards, trade cards, product labels, magazines, etc. and in some cases they helped inspire entire art movements.
