Following the continued interested in celebrity memorabilia, Catawiki is offering collectors and fans the chance to own their very own piece of silver-screen history with this selection of stunning photography. This particular auction includes photographs of Sophia Loren from the mid-sixties, epitomising the ‘mod’ look that dominated this era. The extensive collection of vintage photography also includes shots of The Beatles in the 1960s and 70s, performing their smash hit ‘Ready, Steady, Go’ and striking photographs of British icon David Bowie energetically performing with Tina Turner in 1985. Other Bowie images include an original picture taken of him in 1976 in Paris, signed by the photographer Jean Louis Rancurel. Jamie Beeden, Catawiki’s specialist art photography auctioneer, comments, “This particular auction is an impressive collection that features some of the world’s most iconic faces from both music and film. Vintage photographs such as these continue to be popular amongst bidders and with bids starting from £1 it gives fans and collectors an affordable way to start building their photography collection. With so many images to choose from, we expect this to be a very popular auction.” The auction will run from 25th to 29th March 2016 at http://auction.catawiki.com/art-photography-auction/kijkdagen/29737
What is CatawikiFounded in 2008, Catawiki was originally designed as a website where collectors could manage their collections online. In 2011, Catawiki started hosting weekly online auctions in various categories including art, antiques, classic cars, watches, jewellery, fashion, comics and stamps. Most objects on Catawiki have a fascinating story and you won't be able to find them in an average store. Before being auctioned, each object is screened by our extensive team of experts. They help guarantee a varied and high quality selection of lots in our auctions. Nowadays, for millions of people around the world, Catawiki is the place to go for buying and selling special objects. Catawiki has offices in the Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Sweden among others. In 2015 Catawiki received an investment of €75 million and won the award for being the fastest growing company in Europe.
Our BeliefsWe strongly believe that everyone should be able to buy and sell special objects every day in an exciting, easy and secure manner. That is why we are constantly working to make the Catawiki experience as special as the objects themselves.
