Art Photography Auction Opportunity!!
So.. If you've looked though the big Contemporary Auctions Catalogs.. and been depressed by all the
stupid, sky high price estimates.... If you happen NOT to have a few extra million bucks to buy a cool Andy Warhol MAO image... If like me, you were robbed out bid by all the insane crazy aggressive bidding at the recent NYC Photography auctions. Then there's an art photography alternative auction well worth checking out.
Actually, I'm almost hesitant to even tell people about this one.. cause
my greedy self I would rather keep this gem all to myself!! So if anyone sees me bidding.. You have to promise, DON'T BID against ME!! THANKS.
So..It's a bit smaller than Sothebys, Christies and Phillips but this up and coming photo auction is run by the
almost too honest to be a NYC art dealer a real photo pro and ex-sothebys specialist Daniel Cooney Fine Art
This time Dan's put together a very high quality sale of 100 lots.. photo's include work by : Karl Struss, Lewis Hine, Alfred Stieglitz, George Platt Lynes, James Van Der Zee, Walker Evans, Lisette Model, Man Ray, Todd Webb, Leon Levinstein, Weegee, Aaron Siskind, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ralph Gibson, Danny Lyon, Garry Winogrand, Larry Fink, Ruth Orkin, Todd Papageorge, Bruce Weber, and David Armstrong just to name
drop a few!
Wow!! That's an impressive list!! Plus, some of these have
sweet low reserve levels, many are only $250!
(Example is Lot #728252, Vintage Gelatin Silver Print, by George Platt Lynes, "Fashion Image"..starting bid only $1,200)
There's many more to choose from..Here it is.. CHECK IT OUT! So, you have a few days left to go and inspect the lots before bidding. They're all on display in Chelsea at :
Oh.. and FYI.. if you meet Dan.. Please tell him Mike at MAO sent you.. I hear he gives all
the smart MAO readers a special auction discount catalogue!!
