$21,325,063: a record for the Howard Stein’s auction at Sotheby’s


Sotheby’s sale of 175 Masterworks to Celebrate 175 Years of Photography on December 11 and 12 in New York realized a record $21,325,063, led by Alvin Langdon Coburn’s Shadows and Reflections, Venice, at $965,000, and Alfred Stieglitz’s Evening, New York from the Shelton at $929,000 — both well over high estimate. The sale attracted many leading dealers and collectors and the evening sale especially boasted the largest number of people in a New York photography auction salesroom in many years. And in an era when phone, order, and online bidding usually far outnumbers the bidding in the room, this sale featured a majority of winning bids coming from the room, making for real excitement from beginning to end.
