Vintage Posters & Graphic Design
Sale #2660

This auction will be a combination of many of Swann’s most desirable poster-collecting categories, presenting an exceptional, curated selection of images relating to skiing, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, travel and advertising. New to the February lineup is a robust section of Graphic Design—posters and ephemera—covering movements such as the Vienna Secession, Constructivism, Bauhaus, Mid-Century Modernism, Futurism, Dada and other scintillating styles.

Headlining Art Nouveau is Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, with one of 100 signed copies of L’Estampe Originale, 1895 (see the inside front cover of this issue of The Trumpet); as well as Alphonse Mucha, with a complete portfolio of his Documents Decoratifs, 1902; and posters by Pierre Bonnard, Ludwig Holhwein, Maxfield Parrish, and Leonetto Cappiello.

Pinnacles of our annual ski poster selection are the delightful and rare St. Anton / Arlberg by Berta Czegka, and several examples by Martin Peikert and Sascha Maurer. Among some of the other featured sections will be circus and magic, ocean liner, automobiles, Mather Work Incentive, and psychedelic rock posters. Rounding out the sale with Graphic Design masterpieces, we have the rare and exquisite Bil Bol, 1907, by Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Kleine Dada Soiree, 1922, by Kurt Schwitters & Theo van Doesburg, and Emperor Francis Joseph / 60 Years Jubilee, 1908, by Bertold Loffler, offered among alluring works by László Moholy-Nagy, Enrico Prampolini, Edward McKnight Kauffer, A.M. Cassandre, Otto Baumberger, and Erik Nitsche.
