The second partnership between Christie’s and The National Geographic resulted in one more online sale. To celebrate 125 years of National Geographic Society, Christie’s will conduct the online-only sale from July 19 through July 29 at Christie’s. The sale will include 125 of the most iconic and recognisable works from the National Geographic’s rich history in the fields of geography, archaeology, exploration, science, wildlife and world cultures. Newly printed photograps in limited editions will be offered with estimates ranging from $400-5,000.
Among the highest estimates in the sale is Stephen Alvarez’ Majlis al Jinn Cave, Oman, 2004, a digital chromogenic print, which is valued at $1,500-2,000.
Beverly Joubert’s Zebras at a Watering Hole, Mkgadigadi, Botswana, 2009 will follow with an estimate of $1,200-1,800.
Further highlights include extremely rare prints from Thomas Abercrombie’s original Kodachrome negatives.
Many of the works seen in the sale have never been offered at auction in such large formats, so this sale presents an exceptional opportunity for all collectors and avid readers of the renowned magazine.
