Poster Auctions International Announces Sale of Important and Rare Posters
For 25 years, Poster Auctions International has been the world’s preeminent auctioneer of original, vintage posters.
NEW YORK, NY.- On Sunday, November 14, Poster Auctions International will offer over 550 lots of rare, vintage posters in its 51st semi-annual auction of Art Nouveau and Art Deco masterpieces. This will be the largest auction the company has ever presented, with estimates pointing toward a two million dollar sale. In addition to the exceptionally rare posters included in this auction are several noteworthy collections never before seen on the market. This unmatched gathering of rare posters will be on view from October 29 – November 13, open and free to the public for two weeks.

Starting the auction is an exceptionally important group of European avant-garde posters from the early 20th century. Boasting such greats as Van Doesburg, Schwitters, Breton, Tzara, Tschichold, the Stenberg Brothers, Dubuffet and more, this is a star-studded beginning to the sale. Immediately following this section are four specialty categories, featuring some of the best examples of rare film, magic, circus, and early theatrical posters. Highlights include the earliest poster for Disney’s Mickey Mouse, several Buffalo Bill gems, one of the first promotional posters for Harry Houdini, and the original stage poster for The Wizard of Oz.

Art Nouveau is gorgeously represented by a staggering collection of works by Cappiello and Chéret (38 posters each!), as well as the best examples by Alphonse Mucha, including his Four Jewels. Also featured are Steinlen’s grand Motocycles Comiot, Toussaint’s Café Jacamo, Toulouse-Lautrec’s Moulin Rouge (as well as 15 other iconic images by the artist), and Orazi’s masterpiece for La Maison Moderne.

Art Deco is crowned by the largest collection of works by A.M. Cassandre ever offered in the States, including all his best works from the Étoile du Nord to the Wagons Bar, the Nord Express to Dubonnet, as well as one of three known copies of his Ernest hats. Additional highlights include original drawings by Paul Colin, as well as his vibrant Tumulte Noir portfolio and seldom-seen poster for Josephine Baker.

This once-in-a-lifetime show will be on view, free to the public beginning Friday, October 29 through Saturday, November 13.
