I first fell in love with posters when I discovered the work of Swiss graphic designer Claude Kuhn. I was lucky – I easily found my favorite poster for sale and was able to bring it back home. When life is not as easy as that, Galerie 1 2 3 in Geneva can make your poster dreams a reality!
Galerie 1 2 3 are poster specialists. Their collection is just amazing! They host original pieces from the late 19th century until today! Through their website search engine, you have the opportunity to look up most of the works, though it is even better to see the posters in person.
The gallery changes their exhibition several times a year. This is a great opportunity to discover a new period or topic in the history of graphic advertising – Switzerland is well known for it! Famous posters can be exhibited – the last time I visited, I saw a Beatles’ Yellow Submarine movie poster.
As Galerie 1 2 3 only sells original pieces: their posters are authentic art works documenting contemporary society. So, you can consider your purchase as an art investment. It is definitely worthwhile buying the poster of your dreams and, thanks to the conservation care provided by the gallery to every piece, you can be sure that you will keep admiring your artwork for decades!
PS: If the shop is closed, don’t worry: the windows are huge and it is always possible to have a look inside.
