I don't remember which thread people were debating about fashion photography and art.
if price can make anything become ART, I believe we can now say Avedon is an artist. Since Dior has recently buy the famous Dovina with elephants @ Christie's for ... 841 000 EUROS (+ $1, 110, 000)
this is a record for : a picture of Avedon, a photograph from this period, a picture sold in France.

More Avedon at Christie's
But this is better and more reliable. Perhaps the $7.5 million was the total for the auction?

here is the quote in french from judith benhamou huet :

Quote:
C’est la première fois certainement qu’une fondation américaine vend en France avec des sommes en jeux aussi importantes. La fondation Avedon cédait 65 œuvres du photographe samedi chez Christie’s. Bonne pioche : 5,4 millions d’euros. Je n’y étais pas mais un fidèle espion m’a raconté : Cinq photos ont certainement été achetées par Dior car les mannequins sujets de la photo portaient tous des vêtements de la marque , dont le record : « Dovina avec les éléphants » adjugé 841 000 euros. Record pour le photographe. Record pour une photo de cette époque. Record pour une photo vendue en France. La galerie Gagosian a manifestement fait l’acquisition de deux images de Warhol à 169 000 euros et 301 000 euros.
The Avedon Fondation has sold @ Christies FR 65 pictures of the photographer (Avedon). Good ! The whole auction brought 5,400,000 EUROS ($7,500,000).
Dior bought 5 pictures (...), Gagosian 2 portraits of Andy Warhol.

a very quick translation.
