Vintage Romantic Images

A bit of romance floats in the air around these couples. They could be exchanging that first glance, parting at war-time or just being a couple in love. No matter the circumstances, these vintage romantic drawings capture some of the sweetest moments. Those moments between a man and a woman where words are often unnecessary.

All of the romantic images that I’ve shared here on Free Vintage Art are in the public domain in the United States. Some of them may be in the public domain in other parts of the world. Most of the vintage images on this site fall under the American copyright provision where things published before 1923 or without a copyright notice are now in the public domain.
