We are excited to announce that Phillips in New York will soon be auctioning 120 Henri Cartier-Bresson prints from the private collection of Peter Fetterman. Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Eye of the Century is the compilation of iconic works from the master photographer collected over a span of forty years.

Peter Fetterman, Collector and Owner of the Peter Fetterman Gallery in Santa Monica, said, “Henri Cartier-Bresson was my hero, the man who inadvertently changed my life when I purchased a print of his image Srinagar over 40 years ago. This ‘decisive moment’ set me on a new personal and professional path which continues today. The images in this auction are the culmination of a 40 year journey of collecting his work. These objects have given me great pleasure and a unique understanding of the world and I am happy to pass them on to the next generation.” The images in this auction are comprised of landscapes from the artist’s many travels, spanning from New York City to Kyoto, Japan and from India to the French countryside; portraits of some of the most influential figures of the 20th century, including Malcolm X, Marilyn Monroe, and Truman Capote; and street photography that captured the everyday lives of his subjects from around the globe. Among the highlights are photographs taken of the Russian ballet in the 1950s. Cartier-Bresson was in fact the first Western photographer to be granted access here and these stunning images have rarely been seen on the market. From the highly recognizable Rue Mouffetard, Paris, 1954, and Behind the Gare Saint-Lazare, Paris, 1932, to the rare Bolshoi Ballet, Moscow, 1954, and Dublin, Ireland, 1952, the Eye of the Century offers the opportunity for both new and existing collectors to discover the world of Cartier-Bresson.

The works will be on view at Phillips in New York from December 5-12, 2017 in preview of the auction which will take place on December 12, 2017. For more information please contact Phillips
