Lebrecht at Picturehouse, New York, 2009

Lebrecht enjoyed another successful trip to Picturehouse in New York this autumn. As usual, Picturehouse New York provided a fantastic opportunity to present the collection to new picture researchers and chat about developments in the industry. We announced our latest acquisition – a unique collection of over 10,000 fine art images from Russian museums and galleries – marking our diversification into art pictures. The announcement garnered a lot of interest and we hope that this new material marks the start of a great new stage in our ever-expanding collection.

The trip to New York also allowed us to catch up with some of our favourite American clients. We were especially pleased to see our image of Bernard Haitink on proud display outside the Lincoln Center, advertising a recent London Symphony Orchestra performance at the Avery Fisher Hall.

Thanks to everyone who visited our stand and took the time to catch up. We look forward to seeing you again at next year’s Picturehouse.
