ANDRÉ KERTÉSZ | Washington Square at Night

Estimate: $5,000 - $7,000

Description: gelatin silver print, the photographer's estate stamp on the reverse, framed, 1954, printed circa 1980 

Condition Report: This gelatin silver print, on double-weight paper with a slight surface sheen, is in generally excellent condition. The following are visible in raking light only: faint silvering in the darkest area at the upper edge of the image; a 3/4-inch linear impression near the center of the lower edge which does not appear to break the emulsion; and a tiny deposit of indeterminate nature in the upper right quadrant. The upper and lower margin edges are ever so slightly curled upwards, and the margin corners are gently bumped. There is some minor soiling on the reverse. The photographer's estate stamp is numbered '5-0147-25-1-1-02-G' in ink; '5-0147-25-1-1-02-G,' 'SBG-AKE-147-0000-C,' and '006' are also written in an unidentified hand in pencil on the reverse.The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.
