  • Catalogue Essay

    After leaving Saatchi and Saatchi in 1993, Paul Arden established his own film production company and began travelling extensively in Eastern Europe. He would use the trips to feed his appetite for Eastern European photography. Visiting markets, dealers and galleries throughout the region, Arden acquired albums, books and prints, the culmination of which is presented in this lot. His collection of forty-three works, many framed, range from early pieces by István Kerny and Imre Kinszki, to 19th-century albumen prints, and photojournalism from the 1930s.

    This lot is to be sold with no reserve.
