Early 20th Century Chinese Hataman Cigarette Advertisement Poster

About

This framed advertising poster for Hataman Cigarettes from the late 1920s melds the meticulous detail of traditional Chinese painting with the craft of color lithography. These advertisements, depicting fashionable women and influenced by the Art Deco movement in the west, recall the economic boom of early 20th century Shanghai, an international centre of business and trade. Today, these posters are prized by collectors and preserved in museum collections both for their artistry and for the unique glimpse they give of the past.
