It is spring auction time and we noticed two incredible photographs by Richard Prince featured at Christie's. With a nod to the west that only Richard Prince can bring, the impact and the story behind his photographs, it is no surprise that Christie’s is currently selling 5 pieces by Prince ranging in price from 1,000,000 – 10,000,000.
Christie’s was founded in 1766 by James Christie and is known for extraordinary art and expertise. They offer 350 auctions annually operating globally in London, New York, Paris, Geneva, Milan, Amsterdam, Dubai, Zurich, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Mumbai.
As a pioneer of appropriation Richard Prince's art work has brought about both controversy and innovation. Prince is a renaissance man; he is a writer, musician and maker of photographs, drawings, paintings and sculpture. His work has been displayed internationally in museums such as The New Museum of Contemporary Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, the Institute of Contemporary Art and more.

“Making art has never been a mystery to me. It's never been something that's very difficult.” - Richard Prince
We love how Richard Prince incorporates the cowboy and emphasizes the American spirit in his work. We are thrilled to be representing a variety of fine art photographers here at Modern West Fine Art that embody that same spirit in their work.
