Prints & Multiples Auction

Thursday, May 12, 2022

1550 W. Carroll, Ste. 106
Chicago, IL 60607

Hindman’s May 12th Prints & Multiples auction will include a remarkable session of modern and contemporary master prints.  David Hockney’s Lithograph of Water Made of Lines (lot 77; estimate: $50,000-70,000), from his most sought-after series of prints, was created at the pinnacle of his print making career and serves as an anchor to the session that heavily features American and British Pop Art.


Dorothea Lange’s iconic photograph Migrant Mother, Nipomo California, 1936 (lot 179; estimate: $50,000-70,000) will be the focal point of the photography session. Among the most recognized images in the history of photography, this work has been reproduced countlessly, but only recently has the real story of this iconic image come to light, inspiring everything from History Channel specials to museum exhibitions attempting to unravel the mystery of the seemingly simple image.  

Additional highlights from the auction include prints by Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollock, Louise Nevelson, Francis Bacon, Alex Katz, and Roy Lichtenstein. Significant collections to be offered include property from the Estate of Richard Altermann, Santa Fe, New Mexico, The JFM Foundation Collection, Denver, Colorado, and The Estate of Leona Chanin.

How to Bid: Bidding for the May 12th Prints & Multiples auction will begin at 10am CT, and will be available in-person, via phone, and online via Hindman’s Digital Bid Room, and additional online bidding platforms. Additional information about the auction can be found via the website page.
