westlicht aukton leica

Die 19. WestLicht-Kamera-Auktion am 28. Mai mit 721 Losen übertraf insgesamt alle bisherigen Rekorde weltweit:

Gleich zu Beginn sorgte die mit 350.000 bis 450.000 Euro geschätzte extrem seltene Vorserien-Leica Nr. 7 für internationales Aufsehen. In einer spannungsgeladenen Bieterschlacht von 20 Minuten kletterte der Startpreis von 200.000 Euro bei atemloser Stille im Saal kontinuierlich nach oben. Die Kamera aus dem Jahr 1923 kam schließlich um unglaubliche 1.320.000 Euro (1.900.000 USD) inklusive Aufgeld unter den Hammer. Der Bieter, ein asiatischer Privatsammler, ist damit im Besitz der teuersten jemals verkauften Kamera.

Teure, alte Bilder...

Unwahrscheinlich! Bilder im Wert von US$ 5,6 Millionen (knapp 3,8 Millionen Euro!) kamen letzte Woche bei Sotheby´s zur Versteigerung: Eine Fotomontage von Man Ray erzielte dabei den höchsten Preis...(Quelle: pdnonline.com)

Man Ray's Untitled (Photomontage with Nude and Studio Light), 1933, sold for sold for $410,500 at Sotheby's spring photographs auction on April 6.

Two unique, vintage prints, a rare Man Ray montage, and a one-of-a-kind mural-sized Peter Beard image fetched the highest prices at Sotheby’s spring photography auction, held yesterday in New York City. The total for the auction was $5.6 million.

The top lot at $410,500 was an untitled Man Ray photomontage, which the photographer created by sandwiching two negatives together: one of a female nude torso, the other of a studio light and reflector. The print—one of four believed to be in existence and the only one in private hands—is the only one mounted, signed, and stamped by Man Ray. “I had great hopes for the piece because I thought it was an important photograph from an important point in May Ray’s career,” said Christopher Mahoney, a vice-president in Sotheby’s photography department. The other prints are held by the MoMA, J. Paul Getty Museum and Bibilothèque Nationale de France.
