    Garry Winogrand is known for his iconic photographs of the vibrant society and vivacious culture of America in the mid-20th century. In the present lot, viewers see Claes Oldenberg and his then-girlfriend, artist Hannah Wilke, talking with Diane Arbus at Henry Geldzahler’s landmark 1969 exhibition, New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This image is a snapshot of the eccentric style and dynamic characters of this effervescent era. Exemplary of Winogrand’s oeuvre, a fleeting moment is captured in a truly stunning portrait of New York.
