Wingate Paine: The Photographic Archive

Wright presents The Photographic Archive of Wingate Paine at auction on July 15th. This stand-alone sale features a trove of vintage prints that span Paine?s artistic career and defines the swinging look of the 1960s. Paine pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable in art photography with the 1966 publication of Mirror of Venus. The book, full of images of playful and strong modern women delicately posed and scantily clad, became an icon of the sexual revolution and went on to be printed in eighteen editions worldwide. Embodying the Mad Men aesthetic, this online sale is comprised of nearly 200 framed images from the photographer?s own collection.
