Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 29 settembre 2010

New York – On October 6 and 7, Christie’s New York will offer a broad range of  photographs from the early 20th century to the present day. Highlights include important  photographs, from many private collections including The Estate of Harry Lunn, Bruce and  Nancy Berman; and Harvey Shipley Miller and Randall Plummer. Artists such as Diane Arbus,  Ansel Adams, Man Ray, Irving Penn, William Eggleston and Lise Sarfati will be  featured prominently. The sale comprises 349 lots and is expected to realize from $4.5  million to $6.8 million.  Highlights include Grand Tetons and the Snake River, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, 1942, (estimate: $150,000-250,000), one of Ansel Adam’s most recognizable and extraordinarily  beautiful works. The work is one of nine mural prints of this image in existence and one of  six in this size. This rare example was printed in the early 1960s. Gracing the catalogue’s back cover is Man Ray’s Nude with Shadow (solarized), 1927 (estimate:  $70,000-90,000). This vintage print by Man Ray is of an exceptional quality not seen at auction in several years.
