Howard Stein’s Photos to Come to Auction

“Photos amassed by the late mutual fund giant Howard Stein are heading for sale at Sotheby’s with what the auction house calls the highest presale estimate for any photography collection ever at auction.

Items in the 175-lot sale, estimated to bring $13 million to $20 million, range from daguerreotypes to contemporary photos pulled from thousands of images Mr. Stein kept in Manhattan and elsewhere. The sale will benefit a nonprofit he established.”

Foto’s als investering

By Sotheby’s werd een bekende foto van een schelp van Weston verkocht voor … $1.082.500. Ook enkele andere foto’s verkocht via andere (veiling)huizen brachten blijkbaar meer geld op dan verwacht.
