OK.. so promise to please keep this just between us MAO readers.
MAO is not sure if he's the only
smart awake one who's noticed, but we've found that most of the big greedy auction houses have been stupid slow at reducing reserve levels, and the presale price estimates. So the big art and photography auctions are doing very poorly, and not selling many of their auction lots cause the minimums are unrealistic too high (think very 2007).
Tomorrow is the iGavel Photo Auction (www.iGavel.com) and this time it includes some real gems with very low reserve levels.
Works by Alfred Steiglitz, Karl Struss, August Sander, Alexander Rodchenko, Helen Levitt, Margaret-Bourke White, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, George Platt Lynes, Todd Webb, and even a lot by Vik Muniz (Photo #1) ..plus many more. It's a very impressive list of photographers.
The auctions all end tomorrow, and for you bargain hunters, there are not many bids yet so it's well worth checking out.
Some of these lots have starting bids as low as only $500.
There's even several really hard to find photobooks.. like the 1956 publication of Josef Sudek Fotografie Book, First Edition starting at only $325.00. (Photo #2)
By the way.. no bidding against MAO!! And if you have any questions about any of the lots.. Just call, auction organizer,and
too nice and honest to be an art dealer Daniel Cooney at
