RICHARD AVEDON (1923-2004) – The Beatles, London, August 11, 1967

On Friday, the 15th of October, Christie’s sold set of dye transfer prints of the Beatles by Richard Avedon (from an edition of 6 + 3 APs) for a total of $1,015,000 USD.

This is the 3rd highest Avedon price achieved at a public auction, and the 2nd highest in the past year, following the record-shattering price established by Christie’s for Dovima with Elephants at $1.8M.
