Update on new poster auction records…..

One of my favorite genres of art is poster art and of course the San Francisco Bay movement of the 1960s and 1970s. This movement was led in part by two artists, Stanley Mouse (featured here already) and Alton Kelley.

Just a few days ago a new record was made for a poster that was made for a Grateful Dead concert. Prior to the auction an estimate of $4,000 was given.

Before the auction a renown collector of poster art from the Bay said it was the best quality he had ever seen for a print. This sent the price range soaring and set a record for $19,000 was made for the poster.

In this clip we take a closer look at this masterpiece of poster art!:
