The First Harlem Jazz Festival was held in 1978 as an offshoot of the famous 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival, which celebrated Black American music and culture in the "Summer of Soul". It continues to this day as Harlem Week, a series of musical and theatrical events that celebrate the history and culture of Harlem. This poster highlights the incredibly iconic jazz clubs in Harlem: The Cotton Club, Small's Paradise, and Vincent's Place - none of which are still in business today. Look closely at this illustration to see many hidden details, such as a banjo player and crowds dancing in the streets.

Kamil Kubik (1930-2011) was a Czech-born artist who defected to the USA in 1948 and made NYC his home. He created many works featuring New York City events and landmarks, and was for many years the artist for the White House.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
