Skinner Auctioneers’ May online auction of Prints, Multiples, and Photographs, taking place from May 11 – May 20, 2021 is led by a collection of photos by American artist George Platt Lynes, an American fashion and commercial photographer whose work is known for featuring LGBTQ artists and writers from the 1940s. The works come from the collection of a Massaschusetts collector who was a close friend of Charles “Chuck” Frank Howard, the artist’s partner and muse in the 1950s seen throughout the 22 lots being auctioned from this specific collection. Other images include self-portraits, fashion shots, and portraits of celebrities.
Other artists in this session include Ansel Adams, Brett Weston, Alberto Korda, Annie Leibovitz, and Larry Fink. Also included is a small group of works by Boston area artist Mary Kocol.
