Absinthe – that infamous green spirit, banned in many countries around the world, has been said to inspire artists with its hallucinogenic qualities. The tipple of choice among bohemian Europeans around the turn of the 20th century, it conjures up images of Parisian bars, can-can dancers and, of course, that iconic Green Fairy said to materialise after a sip or two.
Tempting, hedonistic and rebellious – it’s all about breaking free and being yourself. And absinthe posters are the ideal way to celebrate this in your home. Not to mention, their gorgeous vintage style is a great addition to a range of interior design themes. From classic advertising posters to chic 19th-century French paintings, our collection of absinthe posters will transport you to wilder times.
You’ll find a great choice of art styles on offer, all with that indescribable absinthe glamour. Opt for authentic vintage absinthe posters for a real touch of class. ‘Absinthe Extra Superieure’ and ‘Absinthe Berthelot’ are two of our most popular prints, beautifully capturing that unmistakable French nightlife atmosphere. Or why not channel your inner goddess with the stunning ‘Absinthe Robette’ with its statuesque Greek style? You’ll also find some more contemporary absinthe posters, many featuring the mischievous Green Fairy. We love ‘Green Fairy’ and ‘Absinthe – myth of the green’ for their seductive feel. What could be better when creating an intimate bedroom or a cheeky burlesque-inspired bar or dining area?
For a more historic choice, you might love our absinthe posters created in paints. Many are works by famous French artists, such as Degas and Daumier. But you can’t beat a print painted by one of absinthe’s most well-known fans, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. His distinctive style and fascinating life story from the streets of Montmartre shine through in works like ‘Monsieur Boileau au café’.
We have a choice of materials for you when it comes to printing your images. Stretched cotton canvas is the ideal match for paintings, especially when paired with a floating frame for a gallery-worthy finish. For a more contemporary look, slender Alu-Dibond brings a bold finish to colour-intensive absinthe posters. And if you want to stay true to that retro poster style, our high-quality photo paper gives a fantastic performance at an affordable price.
