Auction introduction: Sotheby’s is honored to present the next and final chapter of The Ginny Williams Collection, a series of sales that began with record-shattering auctions in New York this past June and July, our photographs sale and a selling exhibition focused on Ruth Bernhard. A pioneering collector, gallerist, and lifelong patron of the arts, Ginny was a dynamic force in the art market for more than three decades, passionately collecting more than 1,000 photographs by the time of her passing. As a staunch advocate for female photographers, she collected works by Ilse Bing, Dorothea Lange, Berenice Abbott, Helen Levitt, and Gertrude Käsebier, all featured in this sale. The photographs in The Ginny Williams Collection display a breadth of vision and connoisseurship that is nothing short of remarkable; the estimates for works in this auction range from $500 to $35,000 and are all offered without reserve.
