From historical to fashion, important images highlight photography sale at Heritage Auctions
Helmut Newton, Woman into Man, Yves St. Laurent for French Vogue, Paris, 1979. Gelatin silver, printed later, 14-1/4 x 9-1/4 inches. Estimate: $15,000 - $25,000.
DALLAS, TX.- A hand-curated selection of historical images, from Roger Fenton's 1858 Orientalist Suite, to modern fashion, including Helmut Newton's Woman into Man, shot in 1979 for French Vogue, highlight Heritage Auctions' Nov. 2 Photography Signature Auction in Dallas.

"This auction presents a strong range from early important work from 1858 to the impactful photos of major Modern photographers such as Minor White and Contemporary artists like Cindy Sherman." said Rachel Peart, Director for Photographs at Heritage Auctions. "Many of the works come from private collections from coast to coast."

Likely to emerge as the top lot of the action is Irving Penn's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which was shot for Vogue magazine in 1946 and signed and inscribed to Ray Bolger, the actor who played Scarecrow in the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz. It appears at auction from a private collection with a $25,000+ estimate.

Additional fashion highlights include Newton's Woman into Man, which is expected to bring $15,000+, and the artist's Vivianne F., Hotel Volney, New York, shot for American Vogue, could sell for $8,000+. Patrick Demarchelier's Shalom, Monaco, and Helena, New York, are both expected to bring $9,000+.

An important image by Cindy Sherman will again make an auction appearance at Heritage, another print from the same edition, following its record-setting sale earlier this year. Sherman's Untitled, (Lucille Ball), 1975. Fujicolor Crystal Archive, 2001, from a private collection, is estimated to bring $7,000+.

Jim Marshall's iconic Rock and Roll Portfolio spanning 1963-1988 with images of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, and Jim Morrison, is expected to hammer for $15,000+. An equally important portfolio by artist Minor White is also expected to realize $15,000+. White's Jupiter Portfolio includes Sun Over the Pacific, Nude Foot, and Birdlime and Surf and is expected to sell for $15,000+.

An important group of historical images is led by Before the Storm, a soulful image of Apache Indians taken by Edward S. Curtis in 1906 — one of three orotones in the auction — which could sell for $15,000+, in addition to an albumen from photographer Roger Fenton's Orientalist Suite, circa 1858-59, which could sell for $6,000+.

Additional highlights include but are not limited by:

Première at La Scala, Milan, 1933. By Alfred Eisenstaedt. Estimate: $10,000+.

Nadja Auermann, Paramount Studios, Los Angeles, 1996, by Peter Lindbergh. Estimate: $10,000+.

New York at Night, 1932, by Berenice Abbott. Estimate: $8,000+.

Walkway, Manhattan Bridge, New York, 1936, by Berenice Abbott. Estimate: $4,000+.
