Poster Auctions International to host specialty sale of over 400 food & wine related vintage posters
This visual feast covers every facet of gastronomica.
NEW YORK, NY.- On Sunday, February 12, Poster Auctions International will host a specialty sale of over 400 food & wine related vintage posters. A veritable history of eating and drinking through advertising will be offered, from the whimsical charm of Art Nouveau to the striking boldness of Art Deco to the simplicity of Modern design, all celebrating the culinary arts.

This visual feast covers every facet of gastronomica, including original advertisements from the past 150 years for wine, beer, champagne, bitters, liqueur, bottled water, juice, coffee, tea, port, bread, sugar, canned goods, fruit, olive oil, ketchup, cereal, biscuits, crackers, fish, butter, yoghurt, cheese, chocolate, and a myriad of other delectable treats.

Posters advertising food & wine are some of the most iconic designs of the 19th and 20th centuries, visually expressing the universal joy of eating. Whether you are a college student surviving on Ramen noodles or a seasoned foodie, we all love the experience of enjoying good food. The original art in this auction embraces that shared delight, reveling in all that is tasty.

Highlights of the sale include over 25 posters by Cappiello, Nizzoli’s powerful billboard for Campari, menu designs by Alphonse Mucha, a unique image by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec for a celebratory banquet, and the complete Levy’s rye bread suite from the late 1960s.

This very special show will be on view, free to the public beginning Friday, January 27 through Saturday, February 11. The 160-page catalogue ($40) will be available January 12. It can also be viewed online at www.posterauctions.com.
