Lever Gallery specialises in post-war original lifestyle illustration.
We find and sell original hand drawn and hand painted illustration artwork from the golden age of lifestyle illustration that blossomed in London during the 1960s and 1970s.
Post war British culture was propelled into the modern era by a group of young visual revolutionaries who transformed the face of music, art, fashion, film, television, advertising, newspapers and magazines, to define the look of a generation.
The work captures the spirit and ambition of the era in which it was created and has become part of our shared cultural memory that makes it so resonant today.
These one-off and increasingly rare artworks were painted with gouache or acrylic paint on art-board and originally commissioned to be used for adverts, book & record covers and magazine illustrations.
As well as the original paintings, we also sell beautiful high-resolution Giclée prints of selected original works, some of which are signed by the artists themselves.
Featured artists include; Michael Johnson, Renato Fratini, Pino Dell Orco, Brian Sanders and Walter Wyles.
The Gallery is online or open by prior appointment only.
