Sale Overview

Christie's is pleased to present Photographs from the Richard Gere Collection, an online sale of photographs from the collection of the esteemed actor taking place from 23 March – 7 April 2022.

The sale offers works spanning the entire history of the medium, including 19th century masters Gustave Le Gray and Carleton Watkins, to recognized early 20th century figures such as Edward Weston, Tina Modotti and Alfred Stieglitz, through notable contemporary icons of today including Richard Avedon, Diane Arbus, Irving Penn, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe and Herb Ritts. Many of the works were acquired directly from the artists, of whom Mr. Gere counted among his close friends. These works resonate with theatrics and drama; the images are challenging, while also maintaining a sense of delight.
