Among the highlights of the photography auction on 21 November are works by Diane Arbus – the most famous of which is probably her image of the Identical Twins from 1967 (estimated at around 80,000 euros). The auction also also includes prints from the private collection of Leica photographer Franz Hubmann.
The camera auction on 22 November will offer a total of 642 items. As is tradition, the auction will start off with Leica rarities from the pre-war era, some of which from the renowned private collection of long-time ‘Leica Historica’ member Dr. Bawendi.
A particular highlight is the black-lacquered Leica IIIf, made for the Swedish army in 1956 (estimated at around 50,000 euros). Leica M cameras and lenses also once again form a significant part of the auction. The rarest camera on offer is the black-lacquered, very early MP-24 from the year of 1957 in original condition (estimated at around 150,000 euros).
