Christie’s Presents: An American Journey: The Diann G and Thomas A Mann Collection of Photographic Masterworks

Christie’s Presents: An American Journey:

The Diann G and Thomas A Mann Collection of Photographic Masterworks

 

Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946), The Steerage, 1907. Estimate: $200,000-300,000

Margaret Bourke-White (1904-1971), Fort Peck Dam, Montana, 1936. Gelatin silver print. Estimate: $100,000-150,000

 Christie’s announces the sale of An American Journey: The Diann G and Thomas A Mann Collection of Photographic Masterworks. On public view in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York – the sale will take place at Christie’s Rockefeller Center the evening of October 4, followed by a morning session on October 5. The collection includes rare examples of works by major figures of the Photo-Secession—Edward Steichen, Gertrude Kasebier, Clarence White, and the quintessential patron and practitioner of American art photography, Alfred Stieglitz—along with numerous masterworks in early American Modernism by Edward Weston and Paul Strand.

Alfred Stieglitz was immensely influential in establishing and tirelessly promoting photography as an art form in the United States. He edited and published magazines, promoted photographers through exhibitions at his galleries, and produced his own rich body of creative photographic work. The photogravure printing process was his well-known favored method, and he promoted the technique as an original means of photographic printmaking. The Mann Collection contains his three most iconic works from the Photo-Secessionist period, printed as oversized photogravures; each example is signed and mounted including: The Terminal, New York, 1892; The Hand of Man, 1902; The Steerage, 1907.

The Mann collection also features works by socially conscious photographers associated with the Farm Security Administration which documented America during the Great Depression era, including Dorothea Lange, Margaret Bourke-White, Arthur Rothstein and Walker Evans. Additionally, of particular note are two outstanding 19th century works, including El Capitan, Yosemite, 1878-1881 by Carleton Watkins, and a superb example of White House Ruins in Canyon de Chelley by Timothy O’Sullivan, from 1873.

An American Journey forms a comprehensive visual record of a rich period of production before World War I, through the explosive and radical period between the two great wars, and into the heady post-War period. Assembled by an assiduous couple who were moved by the power of photography, and recognized how severely photographic masterworks were undervalued. The Manns were true connoisseurs before photography collecting took off and had been fully accepted as a legitimate art form.

Steven Tyler rocks the Starlite Festival

Steven Tyler rocks the Starlite Festival

 

Steven Tyler, international rock star and frontman of Aerosmith, rocked the crowd last night in Marbella at the Starlite Festival.  Performing Rock hits from the 70s such as I love Rock n Roll and Crazy.  The concert was filled with fans who danced and thrust their hands in the air to beat the amazing beat of the drummer and the strumming of the electric guitars.

The whole concert is based on a simple but effective premise: when an artist has a good time on stage, the audience also enjoys it.

Spring into Spring

Spring into Spring

Miami is the place to see and be seen this Spring (by Sebastian Marc)

Faena District in Mid beach

Spring is upon us and its time to swap our cashmere sweaters for shorts and sandals!  The flowers are starting to bloom and the weather only gets better.

Spring is a fantastic season. The best in my opinion to take a break, relax and be creative. The flowers are in Bloom, the greys fade and the temperature rises with it.  Spring “break” is a great time to get away from it all. This year Miami is one of those places we all have to escape to. The clear blue skies, the tropical sea and the perfect party season. Who could blame you!

South Beach Art Deco

South beach, made world famous by Miami Vice, is the epicentre of everything sun and sea. Ocean Drive is the catwalk of all things Miami, Supermodels, drifters, filmstars and  locals call this stretch of Nirvanna the place to be! South Beach has always known how to reinvent itself. Starting as a sleepy town, to nomads land later on in the 80s as a bohemian bolthole to the 2000s as a celeb magnet.  As of late South Beach is going through its latest ,and most profound revival. South Beach is home to the celebrated Art Basel (and by far the most popular of Art Basel festivals).

Art BASEL….

Art Basel has helped Miami shrug of its down market image of drunk fuelled beach party’s.  Art, sophistication and world renowed design now reign supreme in this city. However Miami, unlike so many other destinations still retains its Latin-Carribbean feel. Despite all the Luxury condos and Hotels Miami is still a home from home for so many different nationalities. In few other cities do different nationailities intergrate and co-exist in such a beautiful way as they do in Miami.

 

Keeping it cool with some coconut milk..

We can’t talk about Miami and not mention Art Deco! Miami Beach has the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in the world and many of these masterpieces have been transformed into stunning Hotels. The Raleigh is my favourite on South Beach. It is on the best stretch of South Beach right on the water but still remains secluded and privee.

The fantastic Raleigh Hotel with is surreal pool!

Miami is the best place to see and be seen whether its your first time or not

Now do you need more convincing to visit Miami?

Cathay Pacific has daily flights from Hong Kong and Tapei to Miami.

On our way there chicas!….
