Christie’s is gearing up for another blowout photography auction, and as always, it makes for great browsing. We’ve pulled together some of the best shots after the jump, including Salvador Dalí, Douglas Fairbanks and a couple tasteful nudes. Fair warning: it may be mildly NSFW if your boss isn’t an art lover.
