The Heir’s Not Apparent: A Legal Battle
Over Vivian Maier’s Work

Vivian Maier Minneapolis' Gallery has 45 gelatin-silver prints on Exhibit.

A few months ago, the name most associated with the discovery of photographer Vivian Maier was John Maloof. Maker of the documentary film Finding Vivian Maier, Maloof is said to own between 80–90% of known work by the eccentric nanny-cum-artist. But a few weeks ago, when the film premiered in the UK, a story emerged that many of us had never heard: Maloof may not have been the first to discover Maier, and although he owns the majority of her work, he’s not the only person making prints of her negatives. Things were less tidy, more fractured than they’d seemed.

After I published my article about the state of Maier’s estate, someone mentioned in it, Jeffrey Goldstein, contacted me. Goldstein, a collector and artist himself, says he owns about 20,000 of Maier’s images and, like, Maloof, makes and sells prints of her work. (These are called the Jeffrey Goldstein and Maloof Collections.) Goldstein agreed to speak with me about some of the concerns raised in my previous post — including the handling of Maier’s artworks and story, as well as the ethics of making posthumous prints from her original negatives. During our conversation, Goldstein explained his reasons and process for printing Maier’s work, illuminated just how fractured Maier’s archive is, and revealed that — contrary to what’s been previously reported — the mysterious woman who died alone does have a living heir.

Vivian Maier Minnepolis Gallery exhibits 45 gelatin silver prints owned by Orin and Abby Rutchick. The Rutchicks received a letter on Aug. 19, from the Chicago law firm representing Cook County and the estate, asking them to preserve all documents related to Maier's images and their sale. This suit and legal actions do not apply to work already purchased. We therefore may be the only gallery exhibiting a Maier collection of this size in the U.S., and possibly the world. More from Hyperallergic has to say on rightful owners of the Maier copyright.
