Lauren Bacall: Vintage Poster Enthusiast

A few years ago, we were lucky enough to auction off a copy of Toulouse-Lautrec’s Confetti which once belonged to Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart. We even included a picture in the catalogue of Bogie hanging the piece on Christmas Day in their home.

Little did I know that this wasn’t the Bogart-Bacall’s only vintage poster.

Last week, while perusing the Lauren Bacall auction catalog for my personal shopping needs, I came across a bevy of interior shots of her home in the Dakota. In addition to some truly startling furniture choices, girl liked herself some Art Nouveau advertising:

Lauren Bacall's Dining Room

Yes, that’s a dining hutch crowned by a Guillaume poster.

And then there’s this:

Lauren Bacall's Dining Room

Little House on the Prairie dining style meets at least two (though, if this photo quality was better, possibly three), Cheret posters.

Lauren Bacall's dining room

Yep, two more giant Cheret’s in the corner.

And finally, from an image used in her apartment listing now that it’s for sale:

Lauren Bacall Dining Room

Cheret’s famous Musee Grevin image.

Karen Walker Sunglasses SS 2015 | ‘Toast Meets Karen’

Karen Walker sunglasses SS 2015
Karen Walker sunglasses Spring/Summer 2015 “Toast Meets Karen” collection is now available.

This season Karen Walker is using a celebrity as the face of her brand for the first time. No not Sienna Miller, Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, or the other countless A-listers who have sported her shades, but a celeb of a four-legged kind.

Meet “Toast” the dog, the King Charles Cavalier Spaniel who rocketed to fame after being saved from a puppy mill.  She was discovered living in cruel circumstances, rescued, and quickly became beloved, amassing more than 170,000 Instagram followers that hang on her every jaw-dropping outfit. Her tongue, which dangles because of her former mistreatment now only makes one love her all the more.

 

Karen Walker with Toast

Fans of brand will notice both the familiar, and of course in true Karen Walker fashion something completely new.  Favorite styles, such as “Super Duper Strength” and “Number One” transform this season, with the addition of luxe gold metal, becoming the “Super Duper Thistle” and “One Meadow” respectively. The rich golden decor is a prominent theme throughout the range.

From dramatic cat-eye’s, such as the new “Starburst”, to one of a kind round designs (“Maze”), and something in between (“Flowerpatch”), there is no shortage of showstoppers.

The color palette includes Karen Walker’s signature “Crazy Tortoise”, classic black, as well as new hues: Navy, Dusty Pink, khaki, and Tan. All perfectly paired with shiny gold, and complimentary colored lenses.

Foodies of Posters Past

I find the term “foodie” rather cringe-worthy, but web analytics being what they are, I have to use it over my preferred labels of “gastronome,” “epicurean,” or “culinary connoisseur” if I want the internet to register this has a haute-gourmand post as opposed to just another one of the gallery’s blog entries.

Having dined at nearly every Michelin Star restaurant in New York, attended numerous underground supperclubs, slaughtered my own animals, and passed the Certified Sommelier exam, I feel I can speak with authority on food. And so, today I choose to bring you the best of the best food-and-wine related posters in our Sunday auction (i.e. posters for foodies).

Bon Appetite!

"Fledermaus" by Fritz Rumpf, ca. 1914. Estimate: $1,700-2,000

“Fledermaus” by Fritz Rumpf, ca. 1914. Estimate: $1,700-2,000

I actually have a champagne poster by this artist in my dining room, and I’m seriously tempted to switch it out for this one. Sitting in the smoking section aside, I would give my left pinky to be able to dine with this fellow, in that hat, being served by that gloved-waiter with a permanent five-o’clock shadow. I’m guessing this is the after dinner pass-the-fruitbowl-white-I-smoke course.

"Campari" by Marcello Nizzoli, 1926. Estimate: $7,000-9,000

“Campari” by Marcello Nizzoli, 1926. Estimate: $7,000-9,000

Do you have a fetish for Negronis and dimly-lit bars? I certainly do. Why not turn your living room into one?

"Biscuits Lefevre-Utile" by Alphonse Mucha, 1900. Estimate: $10,000-12,000

“Biscuits Lefevre-Utile” by Alphonse Mucha, 1900. Estimate: $10,000-12,000

If you just frame a picture of a plate of cookies and put it on your wall, people will think you’re a closet fattie who binge eats while watching reruns of My 600 Pound Life. If you hang up this poster for vanilla wafers, you’re a fine-art connoisseur with a refined taste for dainty snacks.

"La Florestine des Alpes" by Misti, ca. 1900. Estimate: $1,000-1,200

“La Florestine des Alpes” by Misti, ca. 1900. Estimate: $1,000-1,200

Do you get wasted on Jagermeister more times than you’d care to remember? Well, actually, you probably don’t remember – but hey, neither do I! This poster advertises its similarly-flavored cousin, but makes you look hella classy.

"My Goodness My Guinness" by John Gilroy, 1936. Estimate: $1,400-1,700

“My Goodness My Guinness” by John Gilroy, 1936. Estimate: $1,400-1,700

I may not drink beer, but you probably do – and what better way to look like a serious aficionado than having the original Guinness ad on your wall? Your boyfriend will never breakup with you.

"London Fare" by Ethel Gabain, 1935. Estimate: $1,200-1,500

“London Fare” by Ethel Gabain, 1935. Estimate: $1,200-1,500

Ok, so there was a time when I spent many of my evenings decked out in cocktail attire in the hollowed halls of London’s Ritz Hotel. I swear this is the head waiter I saw there every night, chaffing dish never out of reach, ready to prepare old school delicacies tableside while my diamonds glistened in the candlelight.

"Schweizer Wein" by Hans Falk, 1952. Estimate: $1,000-1,200

“Schweizer Wein” by Hans Falk, 1952. Estimate: $1,000-1,200

If you’re at all up on your wine trends, you’ll know yellow wine from the Jura is totally hot right now. It’s one of the longest-lasting wines in the world, meaning that you can drink a bottle from the 1930s and it will still be delicious.

"Meinl Kaffee" by Joseph Binder, 1923. Estimate: $1,500-2,000

“Meinl Kaffee” by Joseph Binder, 1923. Estimate: $1,500-2,000

Look super refined as you express your love for high-quality coffee.

Design on a Dime

A lot of my friends tell me that they’re intimidated to come to one of our auctions because there’s no way they can afford the art. Not necessarily true!!

We have exactly 178 items in this sale with reserves under $1,000 (some as low as $300), and, unlike that vacation you may be saving up for, you get to live with this art every day and then resell it for more than you paid in a few years. Smart shopping, I tell ya.

Anyway, here are some of my top picks for under a grand:

"Pan Am Africa" by Anonymous. Starting Bid: $600

“Pan Am Africa” by Anonymous, 1967. Starting Bid: $600

"Hart Schaffner & Marx Clothes" by Barnum, 1926. Starting Bid: $700

“Hart Schaffner & Marx Clothes” by Barnum, 1926. Starting Bid: $700

“Grand Canyon” by Oscar Bryn, 1949. Starting Bid: $600

"Philips Television" by A.M. Cassandre, 1951. Starting Bid: $900

“Philips Television” by A.M. Cassandre, 1951. Starting Bid: $900

"Moulin Rouge" by Gabriel Deluc, ca. 1893. Starting Bid: $900

“Moulin Rouge” by Gabriel Deluc, ca. 1893. Starting Bid: $900

"Kersten & Tuteur" by Ernst Deutsch, 1913. Starting Bid: $900

"Barnum & Bailey" by H. Gray, 1902. Starting Bid: $900

"Join the Tanks" by August William Hutaf, 1918. Starting Bid: $500

"Dressage Club Molenbeekois" by D. Noib, ca. 1920. Starting Bid: $600

“Dressage Club Molenbeekois” by D. Noib, ca. 1920. Starting Bid: $600

"Harper's November" Edward Penfield, 1896. Starting Bid: $900

“Harper’s November” Edward Penfield, 1896. Starting Bid: $900

January Auction

If you’re a die-hard poster fan, one of these should already have found its way to your coffee table/nightstand/reading area of choice:

Auction Catalog

If not, have no fear, you can either purchase a copy for yourself, or just trust me to show you some of the greatest items in this Sunday’s sale:

Now, since I’ll be doing our bargain-basement post tomorrow (i.e. my top picks under $1000), today’s journey into poster wonderland consists of my no-holds-barred, best of da best poster dreams. Because, as my hairstylist who really, really, really got into The Secret last year always tells me, if you can visualize it and think positive thoughts, you will receive it. If only my bank account worked that way.

"Der Vampyr" by Theo Ortner, 1920. Est: $2,000-2,500

“Der Vampyr” by Theo Ortner, 1920. Est: $2,000-2,500

This poster has basically everything I want in a work of art: boobs, monsters, redheads, and a German pedigree. For those who need slightly more justification before purchasing something, let me inform you that this is one of the earliest posters advertising a vampire-themed film, beating the similarly-titled Vampyr movie of 1932 by twelve years. If you haven’t noticed, horror is always a hot commodity, and I think this poster is tremendously under-priced for what it is in cinematic history.

"La Famille Birmanie" by Anonymous, ca. 1890. Est: $3,000-4,000

“La Famille Birmanie” by Anonymous, ca. 1890. Est: $3,000-4,000

If I had the wall space, this unbelievably rare slice of awesome would adorn it from now until the end of time (or at least until my lease runs out). Advertised here as performing at the Folies-Bergere, the Hairy Family of Birma attained fame as the official court performers for the royal family of their native country. Appearing in four generations of relatives, their hypertrichosis caused the males to grow hair all over their bodies, not unlike Robert Downey Jr in that weird movie about Diane Arbus.

"Miss Dore" by Anonymous, ca. 1895. Est: $2,000-2,500

“Miss Dore” by Anonymous, ca. 1895. Est: $2,000-2,500

We’ve all heard of Loie Fuller, the incredibly popular and famous dancer who appears in dozens upon dozens of posters during the Belle Epoque period. Her fame obviously resulted in many imitators, but perhaps none is more amazing that Miss Dore.

You see, Miss Dore is a dog dressed as Loie Fuller. And the best part of this poster is the disclaimer at the bottom with tells you not to be fooled by other Loie Fuller dogs which merely dress as the star, as Miss Dore also dances. Why can’t we get street performers like this anymore?!

"Emmy Magliani" by Jean-Gabriel Domergue, 1923. Est: $4,000-5,000

“Emmy Magliani” by Jean-Gabriel Domergue, 1923. Est: $4,000-5,000

Unlike my other choices thus far, this poster doesn’t qualify as straight up bizarre. Instead, it’s just damn beautiful. You can always count on Domergue for adding a few too many vertebrae to his women, not unlike Jean-Auguste Ingres did in his infamous Odalisque painting. But, while Ingres is sensuous through revealing flesh, Domergue brings sensuality to the piece through a barely-perceptable touch – she is whisper-light, almost otherworldly, in her beauty.

"A La Scala" by Albert Guillaume, 1908. Est: $4,000-5,000

“A La Scala” by Albert Guillaume, 1908. Est: $4,000-5,000

You know that scene in My Fair Lady where everyone arrives to Ascot? And how their fashions are way more interesting than the race? That’s this poster.

"Chiozza e Turchi" by Adolfo Hohenstein, 1899. Est: $2,000-2,500

“Chiozza e Turchi” by Adolfo Hohenstein, 1899. Est: $2,000-2,500

You know, if this is what happened every time I bought soap, my life would be a far happier one. Seriously, this is an ad for soap. Just soap. Like the Irish Spring of 1908. You’d think it was advertising the $100 soap Hannibal Lecter bought Clarice Starling from Santa Maria Novella, but oh no, this is just your supermarket soap.

Leave it to the Italians to make soap look like liquid money.

"Marco Polo Tee" by Ludwig Hohlwein, c.a 1914. Est: $8,000-10,000

“Marco Polo Tee” by Ludwig Hohlwein, c.a 1914. Est: $8,000-10,000

1. Do I want cowboy butlers to deliver me tea? Yes.
2. Do I want the world to know every time they come into my kitchen that I want cowboy butlers to delivery my tea? Yes.
3. If I answered yes to the above questions then I need to own this poster.

"Josephine Baker" by Richard Ely, ca. 1975. Est: $1,500-2,000

“Josephine Baker” by Richard Ely, ca. 1975. Est: $1,500-2,000

I may be too poor to own an original Warhol, but I’m not too poor to won this haunting silkscreen of Josephine Baker.

"Grieder" by Charles Loupot, 1919. Est: $10,000-12,000

“Grieder” by Charles Loupot, 1919. Est: $10,000-12,000

I have done a lot of posts over the past few years on the perfection that is Loupot’s take on women’s fashion. This poster is no exception. Twirling her little parasol with her bee-stung pout like a Swiss Clara Bow, even the sun in tempted to sneak a peek of this seaside beauty. Although, I guess if I was styling the outfit today, I might get rid of that weird bonnet-baseball cap hybrid. Otherwise, sartorial bliss.

Fusing Pichard’s signature sense of dreamy surrealism and glamour with Leight’s California cool aesthetic —the result is a frame that is undeniably feminine and playfully sophisticated.

Named after three personalities of femininity: Grace Jones, Juliette Lewis and Pamela Anderson — the Juliette sunglass featured here juxtaposes a rich dark tortoiseshell acetate front with beige glitter temples and is finished with soft green gradient lenses. To commemorate the collaboration each pair comes complete with a special edition presentation box and carrying pouch.
