The photo collection sale at Christie’s in New York is set to take place on April 10 yet, but already a nude photo of supermodel Kate Moss is circulating in print and online to drum up interest in the auction.
The Kate Moss photo, above, shot by photographer Irving Penn in 1996, is expected to sell for up to $40,000. It’s part of an archive consisting of 135 lots including a 1959 picture of a beauteous Brigitte Bardot by Richard Avedon.
The photo collection auction is expected to raise up to $3 million.
