Swann 2009 Auction Highlights: Posters

Several world-record prices were set at Swann's Posters auctions this year. We offered rare and beautiful vintage, Modernist, travel, and Art Nouveau images, some of which were previously unrecorded.

An outstanding circa 1910 poster by Montague Birrel Black for the White Star Line, which includes depictions of the Olympic and Titanic ships at sea (right), sold on November 18, for $36,000—more than any other poster by the artist.

Sun Valley / Union Pacific by Dwight Clark Shepler (above), not seen at auction during the last 20 years, sold on February 5, for a record $26,400.
