On September 24th (2:00PM EDT), Keith de Lellis Gallery will be auctioning a curated sale on Live Auctioneers’ website: California Mid-Century and Other Photographs by various artists. Many of these artists are being offered at auction for the first time. The photographs are from a collection that belonged to an important picture editor and curator of the 1950s and ’60s, with additions directly from artists as well as from a collector that acquired material from various artists and estates. We are offering approximately 250 lots priced from $300-$3000. Many of the artists have rarely been offered at auction or privately, but have a rich biography and history in the medium. The prints are mostly vintage and museum quality, and many are the originals that were published in photography journals contemporaneously and have crop notations on verso as well as author, title, etc. This gives them the added value of being a bonafide artifact from the photographers career history. The auction will be conducted live on the internet on Live Auctioneers, with phone bidding and left bids directly through Keith de Lellis Gallery. See below for a preview of the auction.
Part I: California Mid-Century Photographs includes Ruth Bernhard, Wayne F. Miller, Sanford Roth, Don Worth, and more.
Part II: General Sale features Cecil Beaton, Margaret Bourke-White, Flip Schulke, Arthur Rothstein, Marion Post Wolcott, Robert Doisneau, Gordon Coster, André Kertész, Paul Woolf, Weegee, and others.
