Maitre de L'Affiche, PL.122 Moulin Rouge Sells for $6736 US.

Greg's Note: "The poor quality of this piece is shocking. View the Poster
I am stunned that Christies would even offer it, and that it sold for almost $7000.
The colours are faded and the mat burn around the image and edges is significant.
I would never even consider selling a "Maitre de L'Affiche" in such poor condition!"

Here are the proper colours of the "Maitre de L'Affiche"
See a proper example PL.122 in excellent condition.
"My Father advised his clients to always buy the very best condition you can find, and afford." Greg

Forbes Magazine, Best of the Web - Review

"This lovingly compiled site excels at a much-ignored niche: original editions from the Maitres de L'Affiche series - small versions of popular posters specially printed for collectors between 1896 and 1900. Any poster collector will be impressed with the roster of artists represented here: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Leonetto Cappiello, Alphonse Mucha and other graphic masters. And an illuminating mini history accompanies every item. The site's host, a well-respected Art dealer, now sells exclusively online and at Vintage Poster Fairs. Best: Thoughtfully written History of the Poster. Worst: Collection sticks mainly to master artists."
Update: I have expanded my artist listings to include non-masters. Greg
