The Pfeifer Collection

Pioneers Of American Photography
Masterworks of the Pfeifer Collection

In 1988 Lorraine Anne Davis assisted Mr. and Mrs. Pfeifer in the purchase of their first photograph from Galerie zur Stockeregg in Zurich, Switzerland. Within two years she became the Curator of their newly formed collection. For the next twelve years she built a superb collection of Classical American Photography acquiring some of the most prestigious photographs available on the market. It is the only collection of Classical American Photography in Europe. In 1998 Ms. Davis organized a selection of photographs from the collection into a traveling exhibition. It opened in July of 2001 at Galerie der Stadt Tuttlingen and traveled through Southern Germany to rave reviews. The accompanying catalogue 'Pioneers of American Photography: Masterworks of the Pfeifer Collection' was written and designed by Ms. Davis and published by Galerie Tuttlingen.
