Skolnick’s Woodstock poster played an essential role in the success of the largest rock festival of the Sixties, an event that was as famous for its freedom from violence as it was for its unparalleled musical line-up. The poster perfectly expressed in one symbol - a dove perched on a guitar - what Woodstock was about. Despite the need for lengthy text, the poster was graphically succinct and struck an enduring chord with a generation and indeed the world.
In 2009, the artist has also created a beautifully printed 40th Anniversary silkscreen especially for International Poster Gallery, printed in a limited edition of 285 signed and numbered posters. This poster is exclusively available through International Poster Gallery and cannot be acquired elsewhere.
In addition to gallery shows and special exhibitions, IPG’s award-winning website, www.internationalposter.com offers one of the largest, most comprehensive online collection of vintage advertising posters in the world. Originally launched in 1998, the site contains nearly 5000 images accessible through a powerful search engine.
