Do You Love Art Nouveau? Take Note!


Collectors and enthusiasts of the Art Nouveau movement will want to pay close attention to what’s happening in New York City on January 26. Why?

On Thursday, January 26, Swann Galleries in New York City will launch its 2017 auction season with a blockbuster sale of incredible masterworks from the Harry C. Meyerhoff Collection — the largest collection of works by Alphonse Mucha and his circle of Art Nouveau champions.

Of the 200 lots available, over half are by Mucha himself and represent the artist’s entire career, from his time in Prague to Paris and New York. Among the collection are nearly 240 breathtaking lithograph posters, expected to sell for from $35,000 to $50,000.
