The Legacy Reserve Collection of Masterworks by Thomas D. Mangelsen

In 1975, when Mangelsen created his very first limited edition photograph. Tom decided to hold back his most valuable prints, numbered 1 to 20, so that one day as a career capstone they would be offered as part of a Legacy Reserve Collection. Many images featured in this collection have been sold out for more than a decade, which are complemented by recent masterworks destined to sell out in the future.

Initially reserved only for museums and close family, collectors now have the unique opportunity to acquire Mangelsen’s “best of the best” photographs, to own one of the twenty numbers from this special artist reserve. Imagine owning one of Mangelsen’s best known and most coveted images—photographs soon to be showcased in a nationally-touring museum exhibition.

To find out how to secure an image from the Legacy Reserve Collection, visit Mangelsen.com/legacy. Contact a gallery Art Consultant or call Customer Support at 1-800-228-9686.
