Christie’s is honored to offer its final online-only sale of photographs from The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Since the Fall of 2017 Christie’s has been honored to be entrusted with a series of thematic auctions of works from the Museum’s collection, being sold to benefit the acquisition fund for the Museum’s Department of Photography. This final online-only sale features works by seminal photographers including Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Ilse Bing, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Edward Steichen, among others. The photographers represented have made extraordinary contributions to the canon of Modern art while playing substantial roles in the early formation and evolution of the Museum’s distinguished Department of Photography. Many of the prints included in this sale were made in preparation for historic exhibitions at the Museum including The Family of Man (1955); 70 Photographers Look at New York (1957-1958); and The Bitter Years: 1935-1941 (1962).
