Alfred Eisenstaedt's Personal Collection of Photographs and Books to be Auctioned

LOS ANGELES, July 24, 2017 - Alfred Eisenstaedt’s signed photographs of some of his most memorable subjects including the Kennedys, Richard Nixon, Winston Churchill and Katherine Hepburn will be auctioned by Nate D. Sanders Auctions on July 27, 2017. 

Eisenstaedt was one of America’s most treasured photographers. As a photojournalist for Life Magazine, Eisenstaedt took some of the most memorable images of the 20th century including V-J Day in Times Square, the unforgettable photo of a GI kissing a nurse during a parade in Times Square to celebrate the end of World War II.

Eisenstaedt traveled around the world to shoot captivating and important subjects from world leaders to famous show business performers. President John F. Kennedy gifted Eisenstaedt with two of his signed books, Profiles in Courage and To Turn the Tide, as a token of gratitude for photographing Kennedy and his family on numerous occasions for Life.  Frequent Eisenstaedt subjects Harry Truman and Charlie Chaplin also provided “Eisie” with autographed memoirs. The Kennedy, Truman and Chaplin books are featured in the auction.

Eisenstaedt died in 1995.

This auction features 12 Eisenstaedt-signed photos from his personal collection, which belonged to his late sister-in-law Lucille Kaye after his death.
