Christie’s announces Fall Sales of Photographs, Prints and Multiples from The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Christie’s announces it has been entrusted to sell a selection of photographs, prints and multiples from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. All of the works are duplicates of works within the Museum’s collection. The Met has shared it will use the sale proceeds to support care of its collection in accordance with its Collections Management Policy – in line with the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) policy that enables institutions to direct funds from deaccession sales toward collection care for a limited period of time in consideration of earned revenue losses resulting from the ongoing pandemic. Works spanning the history of photography will be offered beginning with a dedicated online sale of 168 lots of Civil War photography from 24 September–7 October. Sixteen lots, including seven Robert Frank images from his seminal book The Americans, will be included in a dedicated section of the 6 October
