  • New Australian Posters

    The Gallery is thrilled to receive four very sought after Australian posters, including three from Gert Sellheim.

    Gert Sellheim is considered one of the most significant graphic artists working during the ‘golden era’ of Australian poster design in the 1930s.
    Artists commissioned by the Australian National Travel Association (ANTA) such as Sellheim, James Northfield, Percy Trompf and Douglas Annand created distinctly modern images of the Australian landscape and city life to promote to the world. Sellheim’s most famous poster, Australia surf club, is one of the works commissioned by ANTA.
