Mucha's Times of the Day hammers for $50,000 at Swann

Times of the Day, a set of four decorative panels by Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939), has sold for $50,000 at Swann Auction Galleries in New York.

The lot was the highlight of the February 25 sale of vintage posters that also included works by Toulouse-Lautrec and Hans Rudi Erdt.
