ALFRED EISENSTAEDT (1898–1995) Children at a Puppet Theatre, Paris 1963 Starting price: EUR 7,000


30.05. – 10.06.2016

Great names before and behind the camera, historical treasures, landmark events of 20th-century history which have long become icons of photographic history, modernist photo classics and sought-after photo books! 15 years ago, WestLicht first opened its doors. This will be celebrated with the 211 lots of the first Photo Auction of the anniversary year, offering a fascinating, unique panorama of photographic history from the medium’s earliest days to the present.




WestLicht honours Heinz Fischer, one of the great Austrian statesmen – and a humorous man as well – with an exhibition of 77 photographs from his career, some of which have never been published before. The exhibition Bitte – Danke! A Portrait of Heinz Fischer presents a wonderful president captured on and off duty by fifteen photographers.

From 16 June to 31 July 2016 at WestLicht Museum

The photographs will be sold at a charity auction for homeless people on 30 June. More information soon to be found here.
