The Best of the Christie’s Photo Auction

Untitled, 1975 by Ralph Gibson

We love a good belly photo.

It comes from an omnibus photo auction coming to Christies’ this Monday, and in the name of spreading the art around, we’ve pulled out some of the best of the bunch. That means Keith Richards, Mark Rothko and Horst P. Horst, along with some of best suits of the 1930s.

Take a Picture

Luckily, the reach of an auction house goes a little farther than a trunk show.

Swann Galleries is having a photo auction with some of the best photos of the past two centuries. Big names include Horst P. Horst (pictured), Henri Cartier-Bresson, Diane Arbus, Robert Mapplethorpe and Alfred Stieglitz, with over 400 photos on the block in sum.

Needless to say, it’s an embarrassment of riches, and auction technology has come a long way since the days of wooden paddles and fast talking Brits. You can peruse the selections online or place a bid here, even if you’re a few time zones away.

And of course, just looking is free.
