Auction of the week
Vintage Posters, Oils, Watercolours, Drawings & Prints, Bloomsbury Auctions, London, 16th February
After last month's exciting vintage ski poster auction at Christie's saw Roger Broders’ 1930 lithograph Les Sports d'hiver a St Pierre de Chartreuse sell for a whopping £32,450 (over four times its highest estimate), we’re keeping a close eye on the six Broders posters on sale at Bloomsbury Auctions this week.
Among the six colourful tourism posters is another 1930 lithograph of the ski resort, but the snow has thawed and the scene, pictured, is green and spring-like and has not a skier in sight. Will this surpass its guide price of £800-£1,000?
Don’t be dismayed if these prices completely blow your budget, though, as several lots have estimates under £100 including an Allen Jones poster for the Royal Academy Summer Show 1983, estimated at £20-£40.
