The Canadian firm has put together an impressive line-up for an online auction, including photography from such major photographers as Abbott, Baldus, Bourke-White, Brassai, Caponigro, Carter, Cartier-Bresson, Curtis, Davidson, Doisneau, Eisenstaedt, Evans, Faurer, Garduno, Hardy, Horst, Kenna, Klein, Magritte, Metzker, Moon, Morgan, Morris, Renger-Patzsch, Riboud, Siskind, Steichen, Stock, Tata, Tripe and Witkiewicz. Work by Canadian photographers, including Barbeau, Bourdeau, Karsh (a large Winston Churchill) and Vanderpant, are also up for sale.
There is a 15% premium but the prices are in Canadian dollars (about 86 U.S. cents to the Canadian dollar), effectively offsetting the premium.
