    Lots 101 through 135 feature Property of a Chicago Collector. Offering a wide historical range from the classic to the contemporary, these 35 lots touch upon defining moments across 100 years of photography, including some of the most revered names in the field, from Eugène Atget to Vik Muniz. Other photographers in the selection whose indelible contributions to the field continue to resonate include André Kertész, Lewis Hine, Maurice Tabard, Louis Faurer and Dorothea Lange, thereby also demonstrating the geographic breadth of the collection. Additionally, with a particular emphasis on the era between the wars, this selection also reflects the incredible diversity in genres—from landscapes to street photography and appropriation—within the field of photographs. Collectively, the works pay homage to the medium while also hinting at the many exciting, endless permutations laying ahead.
