Our 45th poster auction will be held on April 28, 2018. The auction features 358 beautiful poster lots related to Travel & Sports, Work Incentive, Military & Propaganda, Advertising, Art, Design and Entertainment.

The sale will begin with 98 ADVERTISING posters from the 1880s through the 1980s followed by a selection of items related to ENTERTAINMENT, MODERN ART & DESIGN, FILM and MUSIC. A group of twelve 1920s MATHER WORK INCENTIVE posters precedes a collection of European and American MILITARY & PROPAGANDA posters from World Wars I & II. The sale concludes with a selection of 130 TRAVEL, SPORTS & TOURISM posters.

Among the auction’s advertising highlights are an exceptionally rare Ludwig Hohlwein poster from 1914 titled Tekrum (lot 19), the 4-sheet version Raymond Savignac’s arguably most famous work, Monsavon au Lait (lot 23), and a 1949 billboard poster for Coca-Cola (lot 36).
