Antiques Trade Gazette
"On February 14 US auction house Swann Galleries, based in New York, held its latest photography sale. It came 65 years to the day since its very first sale in this field. The 1952 sale – the first American auction dedicated to photography – included a collection of more than 1000 plates from British photographer Eadweard Muybridge's pioneering work Animal Locomotion from 1887. It sold for $250 back then. On February 14, 2017, the top lot was...a collection of plates from Animal Locomotion."
