The Museum of Modern Art in New York is planning to sell iconic photos, over 400 from its impressive collection. MoMA began collecting modern photography in 1930, and became the first museum in the United States to establish a department entirely focussed to photography in 1940. Expected to range from $80,000 – $300,000 USD, the works include photos from an Ray, Ansel Adams and Henri Cartier-Bresson, and will be sold between October 2017 and April 2018 through a series of auctions held by Christie’s. A full listing of the photos that are going up for auction is available on Christie’s website.
