Retro trends, what's new...
Art Buyer is a dedicated magazine for the global Art Licensing industry, recently purchased by the UK-based Lema Publishing. The magazine is focused on providing an effective news forum and promotional service for everyone involved in the business of Art Licensing.
Editor, Jacqui Parr met with Bridgeman earlier this year to discuss key trends and themes which could be identified for 2009, bearing in mind the current financial climate and other social and economic factors including the changing retail market. Imagery discussed included retro public information posters, social documentary photography from the 1940s, botanical illustration and stained glass angels appropriate for the Christmas market.
2010 also marks 100 years since Rousseau's death so there is a significance in revisiting this popular artist. Fashion led art comes and goes but the classics never lose their appeal!
