Classic American photographs include an impressive mural-sized print of Ansel Adams’s Yosemite Valley from Inspiration Point. Iconic fashion and portraiture are well-represented in works by Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, and Robert Mapplethorpe. Significant contemporary offerings include works by Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Désirée Dolron, Vera Lutter, and Hiroshi Sugimoto, among others. All the photographs, including images by Robert Adams, Robert Frank, and Diane Arbus, will be on view during the free pre-auction exhibition beginning March 29.
