World records set in Poster Auctions International’s Rare Posters auction sale

Poster Auctions International’s (PAI) third sale of the year, on November 13, finished at just over $2.2 million. Rare Posters Auction LXXXVIII saw sustained passion for rare and never-before-seen lithographs from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras, continuing PAI’s streak of $2 million auctions this year.

Jack Rennert, President of PAI, said, “We are always humbled by the enthusiasm of our consignors and bidders at auction. Collectors demonstrated continued passion for rare and important lithographs, leading to several new sales records.”

Alphonse Mucha continued to hold sway over admiring buyers. The top sale from this Belle Époque master was his 1911 Princezna Hyacinta, which was won for a record-breaking $78,000 against an estimated $35,000-$45,000. Another new high sale went to the ca. 1899 Bleuze-Hadancourt / Parfumeur, which was sold for $45,600 (est. $17,000-$20,000).

Poster Auctions International’s next Rare Posters Auction will be held in New York in March, 2023. Consignments are accepted until December 30, 2022.
