'Seeing…', Vintage Poster by Lucia Pearce

Product Code: seeingvintage

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This was a fabulous find for us - a large collection of original, pristine, perfectly preserved 1960s posters by the artist formerly known as Lucia Pearce (now Lucia Capacchione). There are only a few hundred of these in the world and we think all these posters are absolutely stunning.

The wording on this lovely poster says:
'Seeing... We might say that the whole of life lies in that verb, if not in end, at least in essence. Fuller being is closer union... Union can only increase through an increase in consciousness, that is to say in vision. And that, doubtless, is why the history of the living world can be summarised as the elaboration of ever more perfect eyes within a cosmos in which there is always something more to be seen...'

The words are by the French philsopher Teilhard de Chardin. We had to really think about the meaning of this when we first saw it, but essentially we think it means that being aware and experiencing life makes it fuller and happier and is really the whole point of it. A poster that tells you the meaning of life, how cool is that?! It's just such a marvellous poster to look at too, really well-designed, and would provide an inspirational message for anywhere in your house or office.

The artist Lucia Pearce was a crucial figure in the birth of the 'New Age' movement in California and is now a world-renowned art therapist and writer. She trained as a Montessori teacher and these posters were designed by her to uplift and inspire both adults and children, drawing on the words of writers such as Kahlil Gibran and Rilke as well as Chardin. They are really eye-catching and the colours are so vibrant, with beautifully simple designs and wonderful words.

The posters are available signed or unsigned so that you can really acquire a piece of true vintage art history.
