NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s presents its Spring Photographs auctions, taking place live and online from 25 March – 8 April. The live auction of Photographs will take place at Christie’s New York on April 6, and will offer a breadth of works by the most influential photographers of both the 20th and 21st Centuries. Complementing the live auction, will be Ansel Adams and the American West, an online-only auction dedicated to the work of Ansel Adams, open for bidding between 25 March – 8 April.


Ansel Adams and the American West is an online, monographic sale focusing on the work of one of the most renowned and beloved 20th century photographers. Ansel Adams captured the American landscape in an unforgettable manner and out of a deep love of nature. This sale will feature works coming from various owners, including a selection that is the last of three planned groups of prints being sold in association with Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, Tucson — an invaluable institution of which Adams was a founding member; proceeds for these lots go to establish an acquisition fund for the Center.
