Defining moments in

POP CULTURE

Tastemakers and risk takers who exemplify modern history

In every lifetime, there are people or events that forever epitomize a moment in time. Whether it defines an entire decade or one poignant turning point, these emotions will be linked in our collective psyche to a specific time and place in our shared history.

Andy Warhol Marilyn Monroe RR Auction

Our Pop Culture auction shares those people and treasured items, allowing us to relive those unforgettable moments of zeitgeist, from music, entertainment, art and current events. Some fine examples from past auctions include:

• “Tony Soprano” screen-used 2003 Cadillac Escalade: $120k
• Marilyn Monroe oversized signed photograph: $20k
• Andy Warhol set of 10 signed Mick Jagger postcard photographs: $13k
• Madonna’s MTV Video Music Award for “Papa Don’t Preach”: $34k
• J.K. Rowling signed “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” book: $13k
• The Clash signed poster: $8,600

The collectibles market sees pop culture as perhaps its most emotional, evocative category. Hollywood and the evolution of movies—from the golden age of sweeping epics and musicals, and into the high-tech, special effects world of today’s films—has created larger-than-life stars and devoted fans and collectors. Music leaves an indelible mark on everyone’s life; superstars like The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and the Prince of Pop, from Billie Holiday to Madonna, from blues to punk…genres and musicians are myriad. And pop art started with the New York artists Warhol, Lichtenstein, Rosenquist, Oldenburg and Jasper Johns, and continued into modern times with Haring, Koons.

Our next Pop Culture auction will be March 15, 2018. Do you have memorabilia you’d like to consign for the June auction—autographs, signed documents, photos, posters, clothing, instruments, unique items of all kinds—contact us.
