This notice has been disseminated to the board members of the Conservancy. Two persons have replied. John Eifler finds it curious that the Johnson Foundation would sell off part of its collection. Kathryn Smith has seen the items and says they are just prints from the portfolio which commonly sell for about $1500 apiece. She also notes that the condition is not pristine. Before bidding too much, make sure you know what you are getting.
