Highlight of this sale is a group of vintage prints by Albert Renger-Patzsch, which includes his famous image "Natterkopf" from 1925. The exceptional work was published in 1928 in his photo book "Die Welt ist schön" (lot 20, €15,000–20,000). The piece was made together with two other animal portraits at Dresden Zoo (lots 18/19, each est. €5,000-6,000) and due to its fascinatingly abstract graphic qualities it has become one of Renger-Patzsch’s most famous works. "Natterkopf" will be coming under the hammer for the first time, together with a selection of other plant, object and landscape photographs by the artist.

Artists such as Don McCullin, Pierre-Antony-Thouret, Simon Norfolk, Stephen Shore, Michael Schmidt and Taryn Simon have depicted acts of war and their legacy, in photographs taken in the mo-ment of the action, as well as days, months, years, and even decades after the event. This major group exhibition has no intention of serving as a ‘history of war photography’, however. It instead explores the various possibilities and strategies that artists and photographers have adopted to try to come to terms with violent conflict, in the hope of overcoming it. On show are some 200 works ranging from a period of just over 150 years in the history of photography, from 1855 to 201...
