What's It Worth? Art of the Counterculture

The 1960s were a turbulent time and to many, an era of renaissance in art. Music posters from 1965 to 1975 that advertised bands like Big Brother and the Holding Company, Jimi Hendrix and others are highly sought after.

Music and politics intertwined during this fertile period and the early, colorful psychedelic work of Peter Max is treasured much more than his later, more mundane works.

Additionally, political posters such as these from the Atelier Populaire print studio are highly collectible in spite of their inflammatory images. Both were bought advantageously by us for $150 each and they might bring in $500 to $700 apiece, although shipping costs will be enormous.

One poster depicts Hitler masquerading as De Gaulle, and the other — Comme En Médecine Comme Partout, Plus de Grand Patron — scorns De Gaulle more in text, though with a withering caricature.

Reproductions are everywhere and are only worth $10 to $20. These original prints would also bring more money in France than they would in the United States.
