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.
Titled Morning Awakening, Daytime Dash, Evening Reverie and Nightly Rest, the posters feature Mucha's characteristic depictions of women in diaphanous gowns.
In June last year a complete set of Mucha's popular four seasons series sold for $65,000 at Bonhams New York.
We have a range of rare posters available to purchase.
