NEW YORK (AP) -- A sale of photographs by Ansel Adams and Lucas Samaras has set records at a New York City auction for the artists.
The records came Monday on the first of a two-day Sotheby's auction from the Polaroid corporate collection. Some 800 more photographs were being offered on Tuesday.
Monday's sale total was $7.1 million, exceeding the top $4.5 million estimate.
Adams' "Clearing Winter Storm, Yosemite National Park" sold for $722,000. The auctioneer said that shattered his 2006 auction record of $609,600 for "Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico," from 1941.
A Samaras work, "Ultra-Large (Hands)," went for $194,500. The previous record for the artist was $132,000 for "Transformation: Eyeglasses" set in 1989.
