Auction: 19th & 20th Century Photography / Dominic Winter Auctioneers / 19 May 2022

Dominic Winter’s first photography sale of 2022 comprises 253 lots, from the early to the nearly new. Highlights of the sale are two albumen prints by Julia Margaret Cameron, Alice Liddell as St Agnes and a portrait (see below) of Julia Jackson (Mrs Herbert Duckworth). The latter has interesting provenance and was gifted to the owner by the British artist and writer Angelica Vanessa Garnett (née Bell, 1918-2012), daughter of Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell, and granddaughter of the subject by her second marriage to Leslie Stephen. Both photographs are estimated at £10,000-15,000.

Other photographers of note include Cecil Beaton, Elizabeth Pulman, Henry King, Man Ray, Angus McBean, Tessa Traeger, a group of 5 very rare photographs attributed to Richard Banner Oakeley and three exceedingly rare late photographs of Upper Burma by Linnaeus Tripe.

There are good albums and collections relating to China and India, as well as USA and West Indies. The sale includes stereoviews and interesting collections of magic lantern slides and postcards. The sale finishes with the concluding part of the Richard Sadler collection.

Digital catalogues in various formats are now available on the website. Public viewing daily from Monday 16th May, 9.30-5.30 and day of sale from 9am.
