Photography

In the eyes of the world’s connoisseurs and collectors of photographs, France is considered the international focal point of meetings and exchanges, as demonstrated by the undeniable success of the many events dedicated to photography - such as Paris Photo and Les Rencontres d’Arles.

It is only natural, therefore, that Artcurial should organise several auctions per year, with sales including everything from early Daguerreotypes to contemporary photographs, as well as specific sales dedicated to works by a single artist or either private single owner collections.  Recently, the Photography Department has cemented its reputation through its ability to bring to market important private collections, offering a fascinating overview of the history of photography in the 2nd half of the XXth century; such sales have included Items From the Willy Ronis Succession, The Stéphane Kovalsky Collection, the single artist auction dedicated to André Kertész and the Pierre Molinier Auction - Emmanuelle Arsan Collection.
