Icons of the Fifties & Sixties - Cool Art Prints
Posted on October 15 2018
Today we are drowning in imagery. We share everything including the images we take on our phones and cameras, those taken by friends and family, those posted on travel and news sites and those posted on social media. The World moves so fast that an image that goes viral is here today but gone tomorrow. There are always others to replace them.
Because of this, it is difficult for images to stand out and become representative of our times. It was different back in the fifties when television was in its infancy, and the exposure to cool art photography and celebrities was limited to film and the few glossy magazines that existed at the time. In the sixties, there was more of everything but there was still room for images to take on a life of their own.
In our specially curated collection of affordable art prints, there are many images from the fifties and sixties, some instantly recognisable, some quite obviously representative of the age. Glamour was simpler and easier to understand. Film stars, models, and musicians all came together as never before joined by the many sportsmen and women who became celebrities in their own right.
There is something for everyone in our affordable art photography collection and we have chosen the materials and frames that work best for each individual image - so we have already done the hard work for you!
This cool collection is just a small edit from thousands of images we have at our fingertips. Whether it is a sports icon, an actress or model that you are after or even want some suggestions to suit a mood please do get in touch as we are more than happy to source alternative images based on your brief.
