Christie’s is honored to offer for sale over the course of seven online-only auctions a selection of over 400 photographs from The Museum of Modern Art, New York, being sold to benefit the acquisition fund for the Museum’s Department of Photography. ‘Women in Photography’ is the next installment from this series and comprises works by prominent female photographers including Berenice Abbott, Ilse Bing, Margaret Bourke-White, Imogen Cunningham and Gertrude Käsebier among others. The women photographers represented in this sale have made extraordinary contributions to Modern art movements throughout the first half of the 20th century; the choice to focus on the practices of female artists is one that adheres to the Museum’s commitment to ensuring that the inextricable place of women within the history of photography, and of the broader arts, is fully affirmed.
