From 7 December 2012 to 10 February 2013, the exhibition ‘In our Time: Magnum 1947 – 1987’ will be open at the WestLicht gallery in Vienna. The large format photographs already had international exposure in the 1980s, being shown in simultaneous exhibitions in Europe, the US and Japan. The auction house WestLicht have now been able to acquire one of the exhibition sets – which, in turn, is to be auctioned once the show has ended in 2013.
The set consists of photographs by the four Magnum founding members Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David Seymour, as well as the works of fifty additional photographers, amongst them Werner Bischof, Eve Arnold, Elliott Erwitt, Inge Morath or René Burri.
