From the Sotheby’s Contemporary Currents blog:

Andreas Gursky’s Paris, Montparnasse is being offered at the upcoming Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Sale on Oct. 17.

Drawn to the French capital like so many artists before him, Andreas Gursky began to photograph the city in the early nineties. With architecture being such an important component of his work, Paris must have presented a wealth of subjects, and resulted in one of Gursky’s masterpieces, Paris, Montparnasse.

This is only the second example of this photograph to have appeared at auction – the first having doubled the auction record for a work by Gursky – and the work being sold in London this October has impeccable provenance, having been acquired directly from the artist.
