Robin Pogrebin’s column announces that William Eggleston is moving dealers again:
“I think the photo community sometimes takes their own and holds them hostage,” said the dealer David Zwirner. “It’s important for Eggleston’s work to be seen among the great art that’s being made. I know that’s very important for him in choosing our gallery.”
Mr. Zwirner was talking about the artist William Eggleston, 76, who has joined his gallery after having been represented by Larry Gagosian for five years.
“Eggleston is really a living legend of American art,” Mr. Zwirner said. “And it’s important for us — and for the artist — that he is contextualized as an artist and not just as a photographer.”
