Literature

André Kertész: New York State of Mind, exh. cat., Chicago, Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2001, p. 13 (illustrated).

The condition of lots can vary widely and the nature of the lots sold means that they are unlikely to be in a perfect condition. Lots are sold in the condition they are in at the time of sale.

Neutral hued image on glossy single weight paper with thin margins. There is minor bumping at the corners, not affecting the image. Condition is consistent with ferrotyped prints of this era, including soft creases in places. This print does not fluoresce under ultraviolet light. Please note this lot is sold unframed.

Additional Charge Details

Additional charges, including buyer’s premium, value added, sales or compensating use tax or equivalent tax, any and all shipping expenses, including costs, packing and handling, any loss damage liability fees, customs duty, import tax, any local clearance fees applicable for your country and all other applicable charges will apply. In addition to the hammer price, the buyer agrees to pay to us the buyer’s premium together with any applicable value added tax, sales, or compensating use tax or equivalent tax in the place of sale.

AN IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING NEW YORK SALES TAX

Christie's is required to collect New York sales tax for any property purchased in this sale if (a) either you or your agent (including a contract carrier) collect the property in New York (even if New York is not the final destination) or (b) Christie's arranges shipment of the property into New York State. The amount of New York sales tax varies depending on the location of the shipment within New York State. We recommend that you obtain your own independent tax advice if you have further questions.

Payment Information

You must pay the full amount due (comprising the hammer price, buyer’s premium, any applicable value added, sales or compensating use tax or equivalent tax, any and all shipping expenses, including costs, packing and handling, any loss damage liability fees and all other applicable charges) no later than 11:59 p.m. (EDT) on October 19, 2017. This applies even if you wish to export the lot and an export license is, or may be, required. You will not acquire title and own the lot until all amounts due to Christie’s have been received by Christie’s in full, cleared funds. Purchases cannot be delivered to P.O. boxes.
