The Dutch have been producing quite high quality advertising posters from about the 1870s to the present day. I've managed to source so many that I will post these in two series: Posters from 1875 to 1935, and at a later date a series of posters from 1875 to 1987. Individual artists biographical notes given where found.
This is part 1 of 7 parts on Dutch Posters 1875-1935:

Nieuwenkamp’s journeys provided the inspiration for his works. Before 1897 he travelled around the Netherlands and Europe.

In 1898 he built a beautiful houseboat, named De Zwerver which took him and his family right across the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

Charles Verschuuren Sr. was born in Tilburg in 1891. Already at the age of sixteen he became a cartoonist for a local periodical. In 1914 he completed a five year course at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam and went to Paris to continue his studies. However, after the outbreak of World War I in the same year, he returned to Holland and started to make commercial posters and theatrical bills which were edited by the firm of Kotting in Amsterdam. In 1923 he went to the United States where he worked during the next twelve years for the New York paper the Brooklyn Daily Eagle for which he designed the covers for the Sunday Magazine section. In the 1930s he took up oil painting. These paintings of expressionist taste were exhibited widely and were well received. When, in 1936, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle got folded because of the depression, Verschuuren started to work as a free-lance artist. From the early 1940s until his death in 1955 he worked as a film strip artist for the United States Air Force and the Army Signal Corps.

1913-1916 Artist Willy Sluiter:
Willy Sluiter (1873-1949) created portraits, beach scenes, political cartoons, book covers and posters. Raised in the village of Zwijndrecht and trained at the art academies of Rotterdam and The Hague, he lived in fishermen's villages and artists' colonies such as Scheveningen, Katwijk, Volendam and Laren.
His subjects ranged from the simple life of fishermen to fashionable city life. In higher circles he was a popular portrait painter. Sluiter was inspired by the French post-impressionists and the posters of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
Sluiter managed to pair these artistic influences with a great sense of humour, resulting in striking cartoons and fashionable posters.
