Photographer Richard Prince captured many topics during his career, including racism, sexism, and psychosis. His interest in advertising developed after he moved to New York in 1977, working for Life magazine. His famous Cowboys series from the 1980s was taken from Marlboro ad campaigns. One of Prince’s photographs from the Cowboys series is showcased in the upcoming auction, offered by Phillips. This print depicts a line of horses galloping up a hill.
Several photographs by Ansel Adams will also be available. Among the leading lots is an Adams photograph that dates back to 1944, titled Winter Sunrise, Sierra Nevada, from Lone Pine, California. After spending four mornings trying to capture a scenic view, Adam finally got his perfect shot of the sunrise over the Sierra Nevada mountains. He later wrote, “Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.” Also of interest in the auction are works from contemporary artists such as Edward Weston, Charles Sheeler, and Pierre Dubreuil. Photograph collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Phillips.
