DESIGNER UNKNOWN. INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF MODERN ART. 1913. 20x14 inches, 50x35 cm.

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $5,000 - $7,500

Description: DESIGNER UNKNOWN INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF MODERN ART. 1913. 20x14 inches, 50 3/4x35 1/2 cm. Condition B+ / A-: scuffing in image; minor creases and abrasions along edges. Printed on card. Among the most significant events in the history of modern art, the Armory Show introduced Americans to Impressionism, Neo- and Post-Impressionism, Symbolism, Fauvism, Cubism and modern sculpture. Though coolly received by critics, the show was an inspiration to American artists such as Man Ray, Stuart Davis, and Joseph Stella. The show was America's introduction to Europe's Modernist painters like Picasso, Matisse, Gaugin and Van Gogh. It was at this show that Marcel Duchamp's "scandalous" Nude Descending the Staircase and other Cubist and Futurist works sent shocks through the American art world, which could not at all come to terms with such a departure from conventional representational art, threatened by the unknown. The uprooted pine tree image on the poster (which was the same used for the cover of the exhibition catalogue) is taken from the Massachusetts Revolutionary-era battle flag, "proclaiming liberation from the art of the past" (Shapiro p. 135), and clearly signifying another revolution, this time in art. The Armory is, incidentally, directly across the street from Swann Galleries. rare.

DESIGNER UNKNOWN. DAVID BOWIE /

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $1,200

Description: DESIGNER UNKNOWN DAVID BOWIE / "SERIOUS MOONLIGHT" TOUR. 1983. 46x61 1/2 inches, 116 3/4x156 1/4cm. Condition B+: restoration and creases along vertical and horizontal folds and lower left corner; repaired tears and creases at edges and in image. Designed to promote the Paris engagement of David Bowie's Serious Moonlight tour in June of 1983, this poster infused the pop art aesthetic of the previous decade with innovative graphic design elements more typical of the late 1980s and early 1990s. "Let's Dance," the album promoted by the tour, was a surprise success for the artist, becoming one of his best-selling albums and Bowie's most successful international tour, which sold out every venue it played in its eight month run. In what is widely considered a transitional period for the artist musically, from glam rock youth to an icon with artistic staying power, this poster rather pointedly shows the artist's Warholesque image fading into a darkness from which this new persona can emerge.

St. Raphael was a leading brand of aperitif that was a staple of the French lifestyle for many years. Once they landed on their unusual, but effective, advertising concept of two waiters, a slim white one and a plump red one against a black background, they kept the idea and asked various artists to explore the theme. Some were quite well known, such as Charles Loupot, René Vincent and Solon, while others were lesser known, like Phili or in this instance Jac, who designed several posters for the company. rare.

Estimated Price: $3,000 - $4,000

Description: DESIGNER UNKNOWN A TALIEDO. 1931. 27 1/4x78 inches, 69 1/2x198 cm. Tip-Lit La Press, Milan. Condition B+: restored losses, repaired tears, creases, abrasions and overpainting in margins and along vertical and horizontal folds. Two-sheets. Framed. Opened in 1910, Taliedo was Milan's first airport and one of the earliest in Italy. It was built by Giovanni Battista Caproni who also constructed an airplane factory nearby. Its aerodrome was home to airshows in the years before and after the First World War. Emilio Pensuti was an Italian aviation pioneer who died trying to land one of Caproni's prototypes, and in tribute, his name was adopted by the local flying club. The airfield shut down in the 1930s to make way for the larger Linate airport. A small handful of modernist poster designs survive advertising aviation events at the airfield, but this previously unrecorded image is rare.

EDWARD MCKNIGHT KAUFFER (1890-1954). ARCHITECTURE. Gouache maquette. 1934. 21x15 inches, 54x38 cm.

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $2,000

Description: EDWARD MCKNIGHT KAUFFER (1890-1954) ARCHITECTURE. Gouache maquette. 1934. 21 1/4x15 inches, 54x38 cm. Condition A-: minor creases and abrasions in margins. Hand-titled and painted on illustration board. Stamped on verso "DESIGNED BY E. MCK KAUFFER 15 FEB 1934." In addition to being a poster designer, Kauffer had many other artistic interests and outlets for his creativity. He was passionate about the works of Van Gogh, joined the British Vorticist movement, designed murals, created book illustrations and was constantly drawing and painting in gouache and watercolor. While it is unknown what this maquette and the following lot were designed for, they appear to be mural studies of the Muses, although we do not believe they were ever realized. They are stylistically similar to the illustration Kauffer did for T.S. Eliot's poem Marina in 1930. previously unrecorded.

H. CHAUFFARD (DATES UNKNOWN). CAUDRON RENAULT. 1936. 47x31 inches, 119x80 cm. Imprimerie Speciale des Usines Renault, France.

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $4,000 - $6,000

Description: H. CHAUFFARD (DATES UNKNOWN) CAUDRON RENAULT. 1936. 47x31 1/2 inches, 119 1/2x80 cm. Imprimerie Speciale des Usines Renault, France. Condition A- / B+: repaired tears, creases and restoration in margins and text; creases and restoration along vertical and horizontal folds. In 1909, brothers Gaston and René Caudron founded the "Société des Avions Caudron," which was one of the first airplane manufacturers in France. It was a successful business, but they eventually sold it to Louis Renault, a car maker who also manufactured aircraft engines. Thanks to their chief designer and brilliant engineer, Marcel Riffard, they constructed aircrafts that won competitions and were used by the early civil airlines (Air France, among others). They also built a lightweight fighter with a characteristic long nose for the French Air Force, the C.561, created in 1936 and introduced right before World War II. Here, the plane is represented in action - diving through the clouds, creating a dynamic diagonal composition and sense of speed. The streamlined aircraft has a slightly exaggerated pointed nose, and is simplified in its ornamentation. Published by Renault, with prominent text advertising the company, the poster was clearly self-promotional in a period when the government was starting to produce arms again. The artist, who remains virtually anonymous, designed at least two other poster designs, one for travel to Vichy, and the other, a ski poster for le Chemins de Fer.

Description: CURT PETERS (DATES UNKNOWN) GRÖNA LUNDS / TIVOLI. 1920. 27 1/4x19 1/2 inches, 69 1/4x49 1/2 cm. Rokotryck A.-B. Kopia, Stockholm. Condition B+: replaced and overpainted lower right corner; repaired tears and restoration in margins; creases in margins and image. Curt Peters was a talented, yet little-known Swedish poster artist working primarily in the late 1910s and 1920s. He infused his designs with bright geometric scenes and ample negative space, creating striking and playful promotions tailored to a variety of silent movies, theater performances and regional events. This whimsical poster dabbles in Expressionist and Modernist influences to celebrate the 37th season of the Gröna Lund, an amusement park in Stockholm, Sweden. Opened in 1883, Gröna Lund would eventually feature a carousel, tunnel of love and several roller coasters built around residential buildings and a small park from which it took its name.

Description: HENRI I. BIAIS (DATES UNKNOWN) ECHO RADIO. Circa 1935. 46 1/4x31 inches, 117 1/4x78 3/4 cm. Éditions Vente et Publicité, Paris. Condition B+ / B: repaired tears at edges and in image; creases, abrasions and restoration along vertical and horizontal folds and in image; writing on verso is visible in upper image. The only thing known about Henri Biais is that he was a member of the Syndicat des Dessinateurs Publicitaires, founded by Paul Colin in 1933. His legacy is a handful of intriguing Art Deco posters designed in the mid-1930s. Advertising a radio popular during this time, this poster features a bird singing on top of a megaphone shaped out of the letters of the brand name, "Echo." A simple and charming image that is obviously meant to suggest that Echo radios produce sounds as clean and clear as nature itself.

Description: JEAN WALTHER (1910-1968) N.S. KEILPLUG. 1932. 23x30 1/2 inches, 58 1/2x77 1/2 cm. Condition B: tear at left edge, into image; tears at edges; creases, minor abrasions and foxing in image; tape on verso along tears; hand-signed and numbered 1/25 by the artist in pen. Paper. Jean Walther was an international figure in the world of graphic design, but the full scope of his work was unknown until recently, when a large archive was discovered in his native Swiss city of Morges. Born into a family of artists, Walther's career took him from Switzerland to France, the Netherlands, New York and eventually San Francisco. In America, he changed the spelling of his name to Gene. Along his design trajectory, Walther worked with Cassandre (in 1930-31), and handled large accounts such as TWA. "Whether independently or while working for large agencies, he developed numerous domains of activity in graphic and industrial design. His work bears witness to the inventiveness and dynamism of this sector during the decades after WWII" (Musée Alexis Forel, Morges - So recent was the discovery of the Walther archive that the museum in his home city is currently holding the exhibition of his work, through July 2016.) This previously unrecorded poster for a cement anchor and screw clearly shows the influence of A.M. Cassandre. rare.

Estimated Price: $400 - $600

Description: VARIOUS ARTISTS MORE BUSINESS MAGAZINE. Incomplete. Three spiralbound volumes, containing 33 issues. 1937-1944. Each approximately 14x11 inches, 35 1/2x28 cm. Louis Flader, Chicago. Condition varies, generally B+. An exceptional and little known trade journal ("The Voice of Letterpress Printing and Photo-Engraving") dedicated to increasing the efficiency, visibility, legibility, impact and aesthetic appeal of printed advertising as well as promoting the highest printing and reproduction standards available. This is achieved through dramatic examples of new ideas in graphic design. Although largely by unnamed and unknown artists, much of the visual content reflects familiarity with European avante-garde movements and sophisticated design, such as later information delivery work by Ladislav Sutnar. Subjects addressed include layout, illustration, photoengraving, caricature, color, visual charts and image size. Hyper-illustrated, the magazine is a visual treat and a powerful example of American dynamism through design.

LESTER BEALL (1903-1969). RADIO / RURAL ELECTRIFICATION ADMINISTRATION. 1937. 38x28 inches, 98x73 cm.

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $15,000 - $20,000

Description: LESTER BEALL (1903-1969) RADIO / RURAL ELECTRIFICATION ADMINISTRATION. 1937. 38 3/4x28 3/4 inches, 98 1/2x73 cm. Condition A. Silkscreen. Matted and framed. In the 1930s, after a traditional education in Chicago, Lester Beall became interested in avant-garde typography and in the design elements of the Bauhaus. He moved to New York in 1935, where he began an extraordinarily successful career as an art director. Not only did he create world-acclaimed logos and corporate identities for such companies as American International Paper, Merrill Lynch, Caterpillar, Martin Marieta and the New York Hilton, but working for the publisher McGraw-Hill, he redesigned 20 of their magazines. In 1937, he was the first American designer to have a one man show at the Museum of Modern Art. That same year, Beall was one of the first designers commissioned by the U.S. Government to help promote the Rural Electrification Administration. The six posters he created in this series for the R.E.A. pitched basic modern amenities to the hinter lands of America, where many such "luxuries" were virtually unknown. The R.E.A. existed not only to help rural America enter into the modern age but also served to create jobs for a Depression-ravaged country. Elevating visual communication to an extremely efficient level, Beall's style involves a technique close to the ideogram, employing clear and direct images, free from any exterior influences that would lessen the pure message. At a time when the majority of the American rural populace was largely illiterate, Beall's simple silkscreen, in patriotic red, white and blue, amply conveys the message of getting radio into every home with hardly any text at all, and has been referred to as "a benchmark in the history of graphic design" (Posters American Style, p. 126). Beall 105, Mechanical Age p. 155, Modernism 252b, Crouse p. 84, Design Graphique p. 83, Encyclopedie de l'Affiche p. 102, Modern American Poster 39, MoMA 218.1937.
