Eadweard Muybridge: Studies in Motion

Online | April 2017

Eadweard Muybridge’s pioneering studies of motion are some of the most recognized images in the history of photography. His subjects ranged from exotic animals in locomotion to dancers – each displaying a playful and inquisitive eye. Muybridge’s determination to capture motion famously led to his proving that a horse does in fact pick all four hooves up from the ground when it gallops, a popularly debated question of the day.  From 24 March to 10 April, 70 lots of photographs by Eadweard Muybridge will be offered at no reserve in the online auction, In Motion: Photographs by Eadweard Muybridge Online.
