Diane Arbus online photography auction ends April 12

41 prints of some of Diane Arbus' most iconic photographs are to auction online at Christie's

Christie's Diane Arbus online auction features 41 of the American visual artist's most arresting images.

A 1945 self portrait of the artist entitled Self Portrait, Pregnant, NYC, is expected to bring $7,000-9,000 at the April 12-ending sale.

The 1958 shot Woman With Parcels is thought to be worth between $6,000 and $8,000, and Arbus' striking Two Girls in Curlers has been valued at $7,000-9,000.

Diane Arbus online auction Photographer Posing Communion Boy, 1968, is estimated at $4,000-6,000

On April 2, Arbus' iconic 1966 gelatin silver print Twins brought $602,500 to Phillips Auctions in New York, having been directly acquired from the artist before her suicide in 1971.

The sale suggests a strong market exists for rare and recognisable works by the artist, who once commented of her often-aberrant subject matter: "Most people go through life dreading they'll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They've already passed their test in life. They're aristocrats."
