Out of the Box: The Art of the Cigar

Oct 14, 2017 through Feb 12, 2018

From the 1880s into the early 20th century, cigar manufacturers provided an avenue for the lithographic arts to flourish. Layering up to 10 colors in a stone-lithography process and even adding gold embellishments and stamped embossings, the images sold cigars through romantic landscapes, Western adventures, and iconic representations of women. In Out of the Box: The Art of the Cigar, opening Oct. 7, 2016, Palace Press Curator Thomas Leech shares primo examples to showcase the rich breadth of artwork created during the golden age of cigar box labels.
