The Rare Posters Auction will be held live in PAI's gallery at 26 West 17th Street in New York and online at posterauctions.com. The auction will begin promptly at 11am EST.
Jack Rennert, president of Poster Auctions International, Inc., said, "These images are vital expressions of the concerns, delights, interests, and cultural trends of a particular place and time. The posters in this auction cover the years 1865 to 1968, with estimates ranging from $600 to $90,000—there is truly something for everyone."
For Black History Month, the auction will begin with 41 black images, many of which are from the Keith Williams collection. Ranging from pejorative to luminous, they reveal the severity of racism in early advertising as well as the later celebration of black icons including Josephine Baker. Notable lots include Paul Colin's reverential portrait of the French-Algerian actor Habib Benglia in his 1928 Benglia (est. $3,000-$4,000) and a touching World War I recruitment ad, Colored Man is No Slacker (est. $800-$1,000).
30 more World War I posters are featured: mostly American designs, and all powerful. Of particular note are Christy's Gee!! I Wish I Were a Man (est. $1,400-$1,700) and several works by Flagg, including Wake Up, America! (est. $6,000-$8,000) and I Want You for U.S. Army (est. $5,000-$6,000).
