Japanese Beer – Vintage Japan Bar Advertisement Poster

Retro Nippon Bar Cafe or Restaurant Wall Decor

A wonderful old advertisement perfect for your home wall decor. Add a frame and it would make the perfect retro decoration in your bar, cafe, restaurant, home theater, office or kitchen. Framed canvas prints also make an exceptional gift for any occasion or holiday. This incredible antique ad shows amazing artistic talent. The 1800s and early 1900s fine art artist and aspiring painters often supplemented his income of selling drawings and painting by creating these unique advertising ephemera.

According to French historian Max Gallo, “for over two hundred years, posters have been displayed in public places all over the world. Visually striking, they have been designed to attract the attention of passers-by, making us aware of a political viewpoint, enticing us to attend specific events, or encouraging us to purchase a particular product or service.” The modern poster, as we know it, however, dates back to 1870 when the printing industry perfected color lithography and made mass production possible. “In little more than a hundred years,” writes poster expert John Barnicoat, “it has come to be recognized as a vital art form, attracting artists at every level, from painters to theatrical and commercial designers.

At The Vintage Vamp we obtain high quality images of vintage artwork. Then we use state of the arttechnology and editing to bring back to life the most compelling images from the past. Unlike a lot of reproductions sold on the Internet, ours have been refurbished to bring out the original colors and fix as many imperfections as possible. We use only PNG format and the largest PPI (pixels per inch) possible, which is the very best for printing. This assures that your image will print with the highest quality possible, no matter what size you choose.

Monaco lies at the foot of the Southern Alps, facing the Mediterranean, near the French / Italian border. One of the tiniest countries in the world, it is fully aristocratic charm and dignity, a gathering place for the famous and wealthy who come to enjoy the elegant atmosphere of the exclusive beaches and luxurious hotels, to attend the fashionable galas and to saunter in mink and satin by the gambling tables of the Casino de Monte Carlo. A tiny world of its own.

Monaco, with a population of 24,000 (about 3,800 of whom Monegasque) covers an area of 415 acres. Sheltered from the northern winds by the barrier of Alps, it enjoys a mild winter and warm summer; there are about 260 days of sunshine throughout year. Winter, 15 Dec – 15 Mar, is the smart time to go.

The official language is French, but Monegasque dialect is spoken by the natives. Many people speak English. The Principality of Monaco is a hereditary and constitutional monarchy. The executive is under the authority of Prince Rainier.

Roman Catholicism is the religion; St Paul’s Anglican Church is on the Avenue de Grand Bretagne, Monte Carlo. Public holidays: as for France, plus Sainte Devote, 27 Jan; Fete-Dieu, Jun; Fete of the Ruling Prince, 19 Nov; Immaculate Conception, 8 Dec. Currency is as for France.

Soviet and Nazi Cinema

The ethnic nationality and socio-economic class ascribed to villains in Soviet films have in general coincided with those of real enemies under attack by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. In addition, screen villains have usually been depicted as motivated by social goals in the realm of political power.

Soviet film heroes, on the other hand, as a rule shared the ethnic nationality and socio-economic class of Communist Party members and their allies. They were portrayed as strong, active and capable of resistance to the villains. As Communist control over Soviet film content stiffened with the passage of time, the Party periodically required changes in the characterizations of film heroes and villains to keep pace with new developments in the domestic and foreign policies of the Bolshevik regime. Quantitative content analysis of Soviet films provides evidence that these demands have guided film-makers in the U.S.S.R. for many years.

Among the combatant nations of World War ll, only the Soviets had a cinema which was dedicated completely to the war effort, with all its production geared “to help in the moral, political and military defeat of Fascism”. Such unembarrassed propaganda was possible in the Soviet Union, where the media openly operated as instruments of the state.

Areas of motivation used in this analysis are: “politics,” including motives pertaining to power, diplomacy, nationalism, war, communism, and so on; “economics,” motives concerned with commerce, production, construction, technology, profiteering, graft, piracy, and so forth; “culture,” those connected with education, science, the arts, communication, and recreation; “romantic love,” those involved in flirtation, love, courtship, and sexual relations; and “family,” motives pertaining to married life, children and domestic activity.

The residual category “other areas” includes motives of religion, social prestige, health, and so on. Audiences recognized the appropriateness of Eisenstein’s Alexander Nevsky – which depicted the peoples of 13th century Russia repelling the invading Teutonic Knights – being withdrawn after the signing of the Nazi-Soviet Pact in 1939, and reissued after the German invasion of 1941.

The Nazis confined most of their wartime propaganda to Die Deutsche Wochenschau, an extended weekly newsreel. During the early war years newsreels emphasized the speed and power of Blitzkrieg to demoralize potential opponents, as well as boosting morale at home. Some wartime tiction films contained overt propaganda messages and, !ike other belligerents, the Nazis put history to propaganda service.

Postwar investigation suggested that only 20 percent of Nazi feature films were directly propagandist, and took this as confirmation of Goebbels’ proclaimed strategy of filling cinemas with entertainment features, and carrying propaganda in the newsreels that accompanied them. Subsequent analysis, however, has been less prepared to make such a clear distinction between propaganda and entertainment – even light-hearted items can be seen as reinforcing the political status quo.
