Marilyn Monroe Photos Set Auction Record
Freeman's to Sell Photographs from the Avon Collection
Photographs & Photobooks
We are now accepting consignments for our September auction of Photographs & Photobooks. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact department assistant Shannon Jeffers at 267.414.1231 or email@example.com.
Recent auctions have featured several interesting groups of material. A record setting price was set in September 2013 for Bert Stern's iconic portfolio titled "The Last Sitting." Fueled in part by a media frenzy prior to the auction, the portfolio of ten photographs of Marilyn Monroe shot just six weeks before her death soared to a record hammer price of $41,250 . This sale also included photographs from the Avon Collection, proceeds of which benefitted the Avon Foundation for Women, the company’s charitable organization dedicated to breast cancer research and ending domestic violence. This collection consisted of over 90 works by some of the most celebrated female photographers of the 20th century including Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Berenice Abbott, and Sally Mann.
