Lippert & Lowry: Battle of the Maps
Poster House is thrilled to partner with the New York Map Society for an evening exploring vintage map posters. Angelina Lippert is the Chief Curator at Poster House NYC, the first museum in the United States dedicated to the impact and history of the poster. She holds an MA in the art of the Russian Avant-Garde from the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, and a BA in theology and art history from Smith College. She is the author of The Art Deco Poster, and has lectured at School of Visual Arts, The Cooper Union, Columbia University, and The Sotheby’s Institute of Art. Nicholas D. Lowry is President and Principal Auctioneer of Swann Auction Galleries — which he joined in 1995 — and also the Director of Swann’s Vintage Posters Department. As one of the world’s foremost authorities on vintage posters, he has spent nearly 25 years serving regularly as poster appraiser on the PBS television show Antiques Roadshow.
This event is hosted externally by the New York Map Society.
