We mourn the passing of our client and friend Jeanne-Claude, co-artist of The Gates, Central Park, New York City, 1979-2005; Wrapped Reichstag Berlin, 1971-95; Surrounded Islands, Miami, Florida, 1980-83; and many other works of art and genius.
Charles ("Teenie") Harris was a photographer in mid- 20th Century Pittsburgh, who chronicled life, big and small. His work was exceptional. Carnegie Museum owns the rights to all of Mr. Harris’ works. You can see their extraordinary collection here. We post a photo from the collection of Charles Harris here on our art law blog every Friday. We provide these with the permission of Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh. Let us know what you think.
