HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON - Allees du Prado, Marseilles

Estimate: $1,200 - $1,500

Description: Henri Cartier-Bresson (French, 1908 - 2004). "Allees du Prado, Marseilles". Original vintage photogravure. 1932. Printed 1953. Stamped with the photographer's name, verso. Edition unknown, presumed small. High-grade archival paper. Printed to the edge of the sheet. Fine, quality printing. Very good to fine condition; affixed to mount. “This is a classic and famous street photograph by Cartier-Bresson taken in Marseille. The photograph is intriguing. The man has a great bowler cap on, an ominous black cape, an umbrella by his side, and what appears to be a cigarette sticking out of his mouth. He is facing toward Cartier-Bresson but looking off to the side. It was almost as if Cartier-Bresson caught this man by surprise and he turned around to see what was going on. In the background you have the alley of leafless trees going all the way straight down. The whole photo feels a bit dark, mysterious, and slightly sinister” (courtesy Lorenzo Rabotoff). Image copyright © Licensed by VAGA, New York, NY. Image size: 13 9/16 x 9 1/8 in. (344 x 232 mm). [25077] |800| {R100} (TL2) tuzz~tozz

HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON - Behind the Gare St. Lazare

Estimate: $1,800 - $2,000

Description: Henri Cartier-Bresson (French, 1908 - 2004). "Behind the Gare St. Lazare". Original vintage photogravure. 1932. Printed 1953. Stamped with the photographer's name, verso. Edition unknown, presumed small. High-grade archival paper. Printed to the edge of the sheet. Fine, quality printing. Very good to fine condition; affixed to mount. Although Cartier-Bresson noted that he did not prefer any one of his pictures to the others, historians regard “Behind The Gare Saint-Lazare” as his most iconic photograph. He took the black and white photograph in 1932 outside the Saint-Lazar train station in Paris. Color film did not exist at the time and professional photographers rarely used artificial lighting in their works. Regardless, the natural skylight and the black and white lens add elements to the photograph that color and artificial lighting could not. Cartier-Bresson noticed the beautiful frame from the hardly visible architectural buildings in the background to the pool of rainwater in the foreground. Still, he needed a subject. He waited and waited until a busy businessman ran across the pool of water onto a broken and disregarded ladder. He snapped the picture just as the man was in the process of jumping from the ladder back into the water, adding a layer of contrast between the man’s hurry and the water’s stillness. Image size: 13 9/16 x 9 1/8 in. (344 x 232 mm). [25078] |1200| {R100} (TL2) trzz~uzzz
