From October 2017 to April 2018, more than 400 prints from MoMA’s collection come to Christie’s in a series of auctions in New York and online. Ranging from the mid-19th century through to the early post-war period, the photographers whose work is represented — including such greats as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, Walker Evans and Bill Brandt — pushed the boundaries of the medium. The prints being offered reflect the history of MoMA’s exhibition programme, and serve as a window on to MoMA’s evolving curatorial sensibilities and strong support for these artists.
Among the most valuable works to be offered are unique Rayograph prints by Surrealist artist Man Ray, including one from 1923 (below, left) that was acquired by MoMA from Man Ray’s friend, the poet and co-founder of Dada, Tristan Tzara.
