This collection of 125 André Kertész photographs will be sold at auction as part of the European Month of Photography at Artcurial.
These 125 prints belonged to a relative of the artist and have never been put up for sale. This lovely collection traces the career of this many-faceted international artist through three crucial periods in his life: Budapest from 1884 to 1925, where he covered WWI; Paris from 1925 to 1936, where he rubbed shoulders with the biggest names in the art world; and New York from 1936 to 1985, where one rediscovers his deep artistic sensibility.
The estimated worths of the photographs is reasonable given their provenance. Only Lot 29 has a considerable price. Emblematic of Kertész’s formal and poetic approach, the image could have been called “Portrait of Piet Mondrian,” for its kinship to the painter’s work.
