Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's (1864-1901) Astride Bruant poster auctioned in New York on February 5 for $60,000. The rare poster, which is believed to be circa 1893, sold within its $60,000-90,000 estimate, suggesting the market for stylistically typical works by Lautrec remains buoyant.

The poster features a simple, stylised outline of Paris nightclub owner and cabaret performer Astride Bruant (1851-1925), his rakish figure,somewhat unusually, facing away from the viewer, wrapped in a billowing black coat and debonair red scarf.
