  • Catalogue Essay

    As an early supporter of photographic greats such as Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons and Vik Muniz, private dealer and collector, Rita Krauss, has been a leading visionary in the field. Credited with having a “great eye” by famed Pop dealer, Ivan Karp, her collecting interests started in the early 1980s, notably with Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, and quickly expanded into photography with Sherman upon discovering the accessibility of the medium. Working as a private dealer, she assembled many highly important collections, after which she opened Meridian Fine Art in New York’s famed Fuller Building where she continued to work with major contemporary collections. Perhaps most importantly, she has passed her love of art on to another generation with her granddaughter Jane. The following lots on offer are selections from her distinguished collection of photography.
