Auction: Photographs, May 21, 2009 @Bloomsbury London
Bloomsbury's upcoming Photographs sale in London has a heavy dose of portraiture: musicians and rock stars, actors and actresses, celebrities and artists, political figures and wealthy patrons. For collectors interested in pictures of famous (and not so famous) people, this sale has plenty to explore. Overall, the auction has a total of 269 lots on offer, with a total high estimate of £443200. (Catalog cover at right.)
Here's the breakdown:
Total Low Lots (high estimate £5000 and below): 254
Total Low Estimate (sum of high estimates of Low lots): £293200
Total Mid Lots (high estimate between £5000 and £25000): 14
Total Mid Estimate: £100000
Total High Lots (high estimate above £25000): 1
Total High Estimate: £50000
Given the overall focus of this sale, there aren't as many lots that fit our collection well. The elegant cover image, Lot 8 Erwin Blumenfeld, (Nude), 1943, would however match nicely with our other nudes.
