Christie's Vintage Poster Auction



2015-07-06 15:36:47

There are some real treats in Christie's upcoming Vintage Poster auction, but for me none of them topLester Beall's Rural Electrification Administration poster, which what it lacks in subtlety, it makes up for in imagery. The poster looks quite modern in terms of execution, which makes the fact that it dates from 1939 all the more surprising. This is also the most expensive poster in the auction, with an estimate of £15-20,000 but none of them are exactly the kind of posters you'd blu tack to a dormitory wall anyway.
