Kate baby!

A set of six Kate Moss prints by Chuck Close printed and published by DC's own Adamson Editions, Washington, DC sold for four times their top estimate at a May 31st, 2007 auction by Christie's International. Close's prints made from daguerreotype studies of the model took $166,000, compared with a high valuation of $40,000.

Adamson Editions published the series of six pigment print images of model Kate Moss, in an edition of 25 prints in 2005. In recognition of this new auction record the remaining complete sets will be priced at $80,000 for the next three sets, increasing in $20,000 increments until all remaining sets are sold.
