Leaves Of Light And Shadow ALFRED STIEGLITZ, Georgia O'Keeffe, 1918, platinum print, $400,000–600,000 © 2015 Georgia O'Keeffe Museum / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York
Auction: Tuesday, 31 March, 2PM
With over 140 lots, this sale is comprised of an extensive selection of classic works by artists such as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Richard Avedon and William Eggleston among others. The sale will follow on the single-owner sale of "Leaves Of Light And Shadow: Photographs Gathered By William T. Hillman". Leading the sale is Alfred Stieglitz’s Georgia O'Keeffe, 1918 (pictured above). Over a period of roughly twenty years, Stieglitz produced a group of over 300 portraits of Georgia O’Keeffe. Relatively early in their relationship, Stieglitz made this stunning image, printed in platinum. There is an obvious sensuousness as O’Keeffe poses in front of one of her charcoal drawings—evidence of the shared passion between the two artists. The present lot is the only known print of this image to come to market from the Estate of Georgia O'Keeffe.
