Cologne 1932, The Varnisher by Augst Sander

Toronto. The OstLicht Gallery sends us this message via email. “We would like to draw your attention once again to the 24th OstLicht Photo Auction, which will take place on 19 November 2021 at 5 pm at the OstLicht Gallery.

“With the selection personally compiled by collector and gallery owner Peter Coeln, we have succeeded in covering a particularly broad spectrum this time. Both experienced collectors and newcomers will find numerous icons of photography as well as many unknown works to discover among the 180 selected lots.

“Numerous rarities will be auctioned, including works by Henri Cartier-Bresson, August Sander, Robert Frank, Rudolf Schwarzkogler, Heinrich Kühn, Franz Hubmann and VALIE EXPORT. Please find a detailed description of these and other highlights in our press kit.

“Auction participants can not only bid live on site at OstLicht Gallery, but can also submit written bids in advance and bid by phone or via a number of external online auction platforms. A link to the live streaming will be published on our website immediately before the auction.

So all you collectors who concentrate on images, here is a chance to get some authentic prints for your collection! Please note, the title of this post is part of a line in the old (1946) song, “The Old Master Painter“.   I was in grade 7 when I first heard the lyrics and song – and certainly NOT sung by ol’ Blue Eyes who sings it here!
