Say Goodbye to Blah White Walls: Four Great NYC Places To Buy Posters
There's more to the MoMA selection than the overworked Monets and Dalis--which say "college dorm" more than "adult apartment." We love this giclee reproduction of an Ellsworth Kelly. (A giclee is a print made with archival inks--a step above a standard poster.) The name of the piece is Colors for a Large Wall , and indeed, it will dominate a space: Framed, it's a 33.5-inch square.
$325, available at MoMA Design Store, 44 W. 53 St., 212-767-1050, momastore.org
Many of the wares from stellar online gallery 20x200 are photographic prints, but occasionally we'll spot incredible text and typography pieces--like this piece by Craig Damrauer, available in three different sizes as an archival pigment print.
From $50, Modern Art, available at 20x200.com
This 16th Street shop stocks only vintage posters--no reproductions. Our favorites come from the American category--like this springtimey one from an 1899 edition of Harper's .
$800, available at Chisholm Gallery Vintage Posters, 325 1/2 W. 16th St., 212-243-8834, vintagepostersnyc.com
$600, available at Posters Please, 601 W. 26th St., 13th Fl., 212-787-4000, postersplease.com
