NORTHBROOK, Ill. – Contemporary advertising, travels and sports posters will be presented by Universal Live on Wednesday, Oct. 13. LiveAuctioneers will provide Internet live bidding at the online-only auction, which will begin at 3 p.m. Central.
“This will be an opportunity to acquire works by well-know artists at affordable opening bids,” said Martin Shape, auctioneer and co-owner of Universal Live. He said that many works in the sale will likely sell for $100 or less.
Other works, like an original Roy Lichtenstein serigraph poster for the 1967 Aspen Jazz Festival, carries an estimate in the high four figures.
Other highlights are original posters featuring works by Marc Chagall, Andy Warhol and Picasso.
The auction will also include rare posters from Willi’s Wine Bar in Paris, 1982 World Cup Soccer from Spain, the entire collection of Roland Garros tennis posters and vintage car posters.
Vintage travel posters are led by a Kees van Dongen lithograph published by Mourlot titled Normandie-Deauville, Le Bar du Soleil. The estimate of $450-$625 reflects its heavily worn condition. The vast majority of posters in the auction, however, are in excellent condition.
