Lots of top vintage and contemporary pieces are included in the many images added to the site. Some of the important 19th-century photographers and images posted include: four top Gustave Le Gray images, including two very rare (one unique and the other one of only three known) naval scenes, one rare seascape, and a superb print of "Setting the Emperor's Table" from a Chalon album that was sold by legendary dealer Harry Lunn. Also included are: a Southworth and Hawes ¼-plate golden daguerreotype of a beauty in a bonnet; another Southworth and Hawes beauty in a 1/6-plate dag; a lovely salt print of Boats Stranded by Low Tide; Eadweard Muybridge's Animal Locomotion, Plate 274 of a Man Swinging a Bat; Altobelli and Mollins albumen view of a game of chance at the Arco degli Argentieri, Rome; a ½-plate ambrotype of a Fire Marshall with Ceremonial Trumpet and Rare Fire Hat; and a 1/6-plate tintype of three Native American Indian Women. There are numerous other fine 19th-century pieces up on the site, including several albums that Charles Schwartz, Ltd. has in the book sale, going on through Dec. 19th.

Twentieth-century images include: an important vintage group of Julius Shulman photos of Richard Neutra houses; Robert Frank's The Bullfighter; a number of printed-later images by James Van Der Zee; Jan Saudek's Self Portrait with Brother; Edward W. Quigley's Study for a Milk Promotion; August Sander's self portrait, The Photographer, in an oversized, later print; Laura Gilpin's "Self-Portrait", 1929 (printed about 1950); other important work by Andre Kertesz, Izis, Russell Lee, Barbara Morgan, Mario Giacomelli, Lotte Jacobi, Lewis Hines, Edouard Boubat, Harry Callahan, Pierre Auradon, Maurice Chanu and others have been added over the last month to the site.

Top pieces by contemporary artists Robert Polidori, Alec Soth, Luis González Palma, Robert Mapplethorpe, Lisa Holden and Nobuyoshi Araki have also been added.

Plus numerous images that will knock you out from lesser known or anonymous photographers. There's something here for every budget.

We have also continued to change out images and add to our essays for all our Special Exhibits, so they are worth another peek, especially if you have not looked lately. If you see one you like, let a friend know too! And don't be afraid of posting them up on your Facebook page.
