The October sale of Photographs in New York features over 200 exciting examples of 19th century, modern and contemporary photography by such preeminent artists as Vik Muniz, Irving Penn, Peter Beard and Erwin Blumenfeld. Highlights include rare and stunning examples from some of the medium’s most respected artists, including Edward Weston and Ansel Adams. Among these is an exceptionally rare exhibition print of Trolley – New Orleans by Robert Frank, made by the artist himself for his two-person exhibition with Harry Callahan at the Museum of Modern Art in 1961; as well as a beautifully vibrant print of Greenwood, Mississippi, 1973 by William Eggleston, given as a gift to his close friend and fellow artist, Tom Young. This sale is preceded in the week by the deLIGHTed eye: Modernist Masterworks from a Private Collection.

the deLIGHTed eye: Modernist Masterworks from a Private Collection will feature 71 extraordinary vintage prints, executed mainly between 1900 and 1925, that beautifully illustrate the dawn of modern photography. Assembled by a South American collector who chose to focus on photographers keenly influenced by the artistic revolution in Western Europe at the turn of the century, the deLIGHTed eye is one of the most important collections of Modernist photographs known today. The works have been displayed publically only once, at the International Center of Photography in 1985. Highlights include prints by Edward Weston, Alfred Stieglitz, Constantin Brancusi, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Man Ray, Tina Modotti, Christian Schad, Edward Steichen, and Paul Strand.
