Sotheby’s announced that Paris will become the company’s European centre for sales of Photographs. Biannual sales in each category will be held at the Galerie Charpentier in May and November.
The first Spring Photographs sale includes an important collection of works by the German photographer Heinz Hajek-Halke (1898-1983) which will be published in a separate catalogue. The 80 exquisite photographs – all vintage silver prints – are considered to be some of the most important ever produced by this avant-garde photographer. This collection comes directly to the market from the Heinz Hajek-Halke Foundation in Berlin.
Highlights of the sale will be exhibited in New York (2-5 April), in London (17-21 April) and in Paris (5-9 May).
