Van Ham's 232nd auction, which will focus on "Photography" will be held next Friday, May, 14 at 6.00 pm. The preview will take place from May 7-14. The auction can be viewed online at: http://www.van-ham.com/auktion/A232/auktion/000224/katalog_gb.html .
The photography auction contains more than 300 works of photography from the 19th through the 21st century.
One of the most prominent lots is a portrait of the painter Gustav Klimt, an original print taken by the Austrian photographer Moritz Nähr. A portfolio of Lucia Moholy includes 232 unique contact prints from 1932 and may possibly have been the draft for a book that has not been realized.
Beside important examples of American photography of the 1920s-40s, the auction features images by international well known German photographers, such as August Sander, Alfred Renger-Patzsch, Candida Höfer and Bernd und Hilla Becher.
