WALKER EVANS - Original vintage photogravure

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $1,200

Description: Walker Evans (American, 1903 - 1975). "Composition". Original vintage photogravure. 1974. Printed 1974. Signed in the plate. Intended edition of 950 (of which all were printed?). White Bristol paper. Excellent condition. Very scarce. Possibly printed in a run of far less than the 950 stated. The printing was derived from a high-resolution negative produced with Polaroid Type 105 Positive/Negative film. In the early 1970s, Polaroid launched a project to show that this film process could successfully compete with gelatin silver prints as a fine art medium. The company gave cameras plus a generous stock of film to leading photographers of the day. Their output was then published by the Polaroid Corporation. As the company noted, this film “produces a finished positive and a high-resolution negative in just thirty seconds, without a darkroom. The positive print can be viewed immediately to check exposure, lighting, and composition. The negative may be retained for producing multiple impressions or high-magnification enlargements.”. Overall size: 17 1/4 x 13 in. (438 x 330 mm). Image size: 10 1/4 x 10 1/8 in. (260 x 257 mm). [24696] |500| {R100} tzzz~tuzz
