MoMA to Auction More Than 400 Photographs From Its Collection at Christie’s


The Museum of Modern Art’s photography department—the oldest of its kind in the US—plans to sell more than 400 works from its collection at Christie’s over the next nine months. The cache is expected to realize more than $3.6 million, and the proceeds will go toward the department’s acquisition fund.

The photographs are by some of the best-known names from the early 20th century to the postwar period, such as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, Edward Weston, Man Ray, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Walker Evans.

Shall we just file under, “Art as Asset”? And what will the Deaccessioning police have to say about this?
