Milton Glaser died two weeks ago, and next week, at 1 p.m. (ET) July 14, some of his work—including many original drawings and paintings—will be sold at Wright auction house. "To Inform and Delight" will include nearly 300 pieces by and from the personal collection of Milton Glaser. "Inspired by music, theater, opera, art, literature and his beloved city of New York, Glaser's work defined an era of graphic design that was lush, playful and intellectual," as Wright writes. "Spanning over 50 years, this collection features original drawings and collages, as well as prints and posters personally selected by Glaser to reflect and celebrate his momentous career."
