Yellow would not fit with all schemes

Founded in Paris, the Atelier Mourlot was originally a renowned producer of fine wallpaper. During the early 20th century, the founder's grandson Fernand Mourlot, invited some of the most celebrated artists of the day to collaborate on traditional limestone lithography, essentially creating the art poster as we know it today.

This original rare lithographic poster by Andre Beaudin comes from the Galerie Mourlot archive in New York, is supplied with a certificate of authenticity and has been framed in the UK by trusted specialists with 35 year’s experience in the museum art world.

In addition to being a rare, iconic print demonstrating Beaudin's slightly-less-formulaic take on cubism, yellow is an on-trend shade that will work well as part of a range of schemes.

 Not everyone’s a fan 

Picasso can sometimes by a byword for the odd, off-kilter and downright discomforting, but this wonderfully simple rendering of the face of Peace is a million miles from that: free, joyous and calming. This minimal line drawing is a wonderful way to get the work of a favourite iconic artist onto your walls without making too bold a statement, and it’s not over-large either, making it a lovely relaxed option for a living room or bedroom where you don’t want to be over-stimulated, but still want to make your mark.

The perfect addition to almost any room (it's best to avoid damp ones), these plaster cast tiles capture a moment in time from when the cow parsley was once alive, and are beautifully minimalist. The opportunity to enjoy plants even if yours have faded away...

6. L. S. Lowry Coming From The Mill 1930 print

May be a little dull for some

Showcase your love for British art with this digital print of Lowry’s iconic Coming from the Mill. Featuring those famous matchstalk men (and to our eye, at least one each of matchstalk cats and dogs), it’s a lively scene that’s kept from looking too busy by the desaturated colours and simplistic lines of the background, and the neutral palette of the foreground, making it more versatile than you might think. The fact that it’s pre-framed means you don’t have to worry about any extra expense or faff, so for a deceptively easy injection of character, this framed print is a lovely option.
