HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON | Selected Images

Estimate: $6,000 - $9,000

Description: 2 photographs, comprising At Curragh Racecourse, Near Dublin, Ireland, and The Berlin Wall, each ferrotyped, extensively annotated, the first with the Robert Delpire collection stamp, and the second with the photographer's Magnum copyright stamp on the reverse, 1952 and 1962 (Cartier-Bresson, pls. 32 and 137) (2)

Condition Report: These early ferrotyped prints, trimmed to the image, are in generally very good condition. As is typical of ferrotyped prints, faint scratches, minor surface pitting, fingerprints are visible overall. There are several white crayon marks on the image, possibly cropping notations. Impressions from handwriting on the reverse are visible in raking light. The reverse of each print is taped to its window mat with 2 pieces of brown tape along the upper and lower edges. 'At Curragh Racecourse': In raking light, a number of small creases that do not appear to break the emulsion are visible overall. Faint pink accretions are visible in the upper portion of the image. There is yellowed adhesive and some abrasions on the reverse. The annotations are as follows: 'Europeens -57-'; '7.14 [14 crossed out] 11'; 'T3'; '209' [twice written, once crossed out]; '174'; and 'U3006.' When examined under ultraviolet light, this print appears to fluoresce. 'Berlin Wall': There is yellowed adhesive on the reverse. The annotations are as follows: '7910-20'; '7910/20'; '10.11'; '444' [twice written, once crossed out]; '276'; and 'U3001.' When examined under ultraviolet light, this print fluoresces readily.In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.

Paris, Édition Verve, 1952.Erste französische Ausgabe. Zur Ästhetik des Künstlers passt das an den Anfang gestellte Zitat des Kardinals De Retz: "Il n'y a rien en ce monde qui n'ait un moment décisif", da Cartier-Bresson mit seiner Fotografie den "moment décisif" prägte und in eindringlichen Momentaufnahmen umsetzte. – Wohlerhaltenes und sauberes Exemplar.
