Phillips Photography Evening Sale
Last week, Phillips Auction House hosted an event titled “Photographs Evening Sale” in NYC where beautiful fashion imagery was up for auction. TFW has profiled three standout photographs to please the fashion-photography fan and landscape enthusiast in all of us. High-fashion photographer Irving Penn’s Black and White Fashion with Handbag was available for the first time since it was photographed in 1950. This work, which sold for $106,250, features the iconic Jean Patchett in a timeless image that is both stunning and minimalistic. Check out our other picks after the jump!
Another standout piece is Helmut Newton’s Walking Women, Paris, a photographic triptych from 1981. At the time, Newton was working on both European and America imprints of Vogue, and began his now renowned style of photographing nude models in power stances. This striking piece sold for $905,000.
German landscape photographer Thomas Struth’s Paradise 26 is also a favorite of ours. This chromogenic print, which sold for $112,500, is face-mounted to Plexiglas and incredibly rich in color and impressively textured.
If you enjoy these pieces, be sure to view the entire sale at Phillips on 450 Park Avenue in New York City!
