LONDON.- Christie’s London sale of Photographs on 15 May will be led by a group of 14 unique gelatin silver prints, including oversized works by Peter Beard, largely commissioned by and for photography collector Anne Igou in 1997, owner of the Hotel Nord Pinus in Arles. After more than a decade of being displayed on the principal walls of the Nord Pinus, located in the heart of Arles, this exceptional group of prints will be offered for the first time on the market.

Horst and David LaChapelle. Comprising 108 lots with estimates ranging from £1,500 to 70,000, the sale is expected to realise in the region of £1.5 million.

These images and their unique manuscript texts bear witness to a magnificent world – a world in its primal state, free and vital. But for how much longer…? – Anne Igou
