Latest Sale Week 25052015, The Pond – Moonlight for £1.67 million

Latest Sale continues to report on fabulous finds from the Business Directory. This week we focus on Photography.

The Pond – Moonlight , a pictorialist photograph made by Edward Steichen (#EdwardSteichen) was taken in Mamoroneck, Westchester County in 1904. Its selling price has broken the world record for a photograph when it was sold for more than £1.67 million at a two-day Sotheby’s Sale in New York. The photograph, #ThePondMoonlight features a forest across a pond, with part of the moon appearing over the horizon within the gap of the trees.

 Only three prints of this photograph are known to exist, and as a result of the hand-layering of the gums, each is unique. Two were held in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the one was sold by Sotheby’s. The third is held in the Museum of Modern Art.
