If there's one thing that can be said about artists, it's that they're romantics! For millennia, humans of all civilizations, cultures, backgrounds, and countries have used art to express their feelings, whether by creating art or gifting art to a special someone.
From the Heart - Art About Love and Romance
At Anderson Design Group, our artists created the From the Heart collection, our own tipping of the hat to all the hopeless romantics out there. This collection features 34 original illustrations, hand-rendered in a style inspired by early-20th century poster art and the iconic Golden Age of Illustration.
Vintage poster art like the posters featured in the From the Heart collection are romantic in a truly nostalgic way, as they harken back to life in the early and mid-20th century.
We included depictions of couples in love, engagements, wedding proposals, love slogans, dancing, scenes of love in truly memorable locations around the world, and vintage-styled oil paintings of romantic settings by artist-collaborator Kai Carpenter.
Vintage Poster Art
If you spotted a retro design or vintage illustration in the From the Heart collection that you think your significant other, family member, or loved one would particularly enjoy, be sure to read about all the different ways you can order their soon-to-be favorite wall decor piece!
Art Prints. Fitting for the time period and giving off a very 20th-century vibe, art prints are nostalgic and retro, vintage art brought to life. Any of the original designs in the From the Heart collection are available as art prints, in several sizes, starting at 8x10 inches and going up to 36x48 inches.
Canvases. What could be more classic and romantic than canvas art? Our premium, gallery wrapped canvases are finished with a semi-matte protective UV coating and a solid, dent-resistant backing for a longer-lasting canvas. Available in sizes from 12x16 to 30x40 inches.
Metal Signs. For something truly retro and durable to the next degree, metal signs offer a cool, stylish, and multi-purpose art option. Because these beauties are made on rust-resistant tin with a special coating, they can be hung up outside! Perfect for porches, outdoor kitchenettes, workshops, decks, garages, and gazebos. Available in sizes ranging from 9x12 to 18x24 inches.
Notecards. The notecard option gives you the opportunity to write a love letter to your special someone and to do so on a beautiful piece of vintage art! Each notecard is printed on premium card stock, measures 4.5x6 inches, and comes with a blank envelope.
Postcards. What better way to show your love for someone than to send them a postcard by mail? From the Heart postcards measure 4.5x6 inches, featuring original vintage art on one side and plenty of space to write a heartfelt message on the other.
Mini Canvases. If you're trying to find the perfect gift for a Valentine who is short on available wall space, mini canvases are a great choice! Easel-backed and perfect for desks, mantels, shelves, window sills, and other tight spaces, these beauties are the perfect reminder of your eternal love. Size options include 5x7 inches and 8x10 inches.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Spring comes early at our Nashville art studio, with February's Dogwood blossoms and Daffodil flowers just out the window. We truly appreciate this time of year, when love is in the air and the world is beginning to wake up again, shrugging off the cold of winter and embracing longer days, shorter nights, more sunlight, and birdsong. And perhaps best of all, this is the month of Valentine's Day, one of our favorite holidays!
Until next time, may your heart be full of love, and Happy Valentine's Day!
