          ROBERT FRANK (1924–2019) | 'Candy Store, 86th Street', New York City 1955 Image Size: 20,1 x 30,3 cm English: Gelatin silver print on double-weight semi-matte paper 27,6 x 35,5, printed in 1979, in very good condition. Signed "Robert Frank" and dated "NYC 1955" in the lower margin in ink, "Robert Frank Archive" stamp numbered "10, 7.30" in pencil, copyright stamp with photographer's signature and print date "1979" in ink on the reverse. PROVENANCE Bonni Benrubi Gallery, New York, 1995. LITERATURE Robert Frank, The Americans, Paris 1958, no. 10; Sarah Greenough (ed.), Looking In: Robert Frank's The Americans, Washington 2009, p. 221, 463, Contact no. 10; Ute Eskildsen, Robert Frank: HOLD STILL_keep going, p. 82. Robert Frank punctuated his seminal 1958 book "The Americans" with resonant visual motifs repeated strategically throughout, including the American flag, the automobile, and, as in the image offered here, the jukebox. The jukebox was a feature Frank encountered in bars, restaurants, and diners in his cross-country travels. With their sleek curves and glowing facades, jukeboxes were undeniably photogenic and provided the pulsating new sounds of rock-and-roll. For Frank, a congregation of teenagers crowding around a music machine was a quintessentially American motive. An additional print of this image is in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.

LITERATUR Robert Frank, The Americans, Paris 1958, Nr. 10; Sarah Greenough (Hg.), Looking In: Robert Frank's The Americans, Washington 2009, S. 221, 463, Contact Nr. 10; Ute Eskildsen, Robert Frank: HOLD STILL_keep going, S. 82. Robert Franks bahnbrechendes Buch "The Americans" von 1958 enthält einige paradigmatische Motive, die sich an strategischen Positionen durchgehend wiederholen, darunter die amerikanische Flagge, das Automobil und, wie hier, die Jukebox. Letzterer begegnete Frank überall auf seinen Reisen quer durch das Land in Bars, Restaurants und Speiselokalen. Mit ihren blinkenden Lämpchen und geschmeidigen Kurven waren Musikautomaten unbestreitbar photogen, außerdem verbreiteten sie die pulsierenden neuen Klänge des Rock-and-Roll. Für Frank war eine Ansammlung von Teenagern, die sich um eine Jukebox drängte, die Quintessenz eines typisch amerikanischen Motives. Ein weiterer Abzug dieses Bildes befindet sich in der Sammlung des Art Institute of Chicago.

Well, that is my temperament, to be silent, just looking on… What I liked about photography was precisely this: that I could walk away and I could be silent and it was done very quickly and there was no direct involvement.

Consisting of drawings, large coloured letters stamped one per page to form the word ASPESI and thirty rehearsal Polaroids, this small album was made by the great photographer Robert Frank, author of one of the most radical books on American civilisation, 'The Americans'. Made in 1995 as a maquette, it anticipates the volume "Ideas" published three years later, which will collect, divided into three sections corresponding to as many campaigns, the photographs taken by the photographer for the menswear company Aspesi. An important document of Robert Frank's work in the field of fashion.

Designed by Kohei Sugiura and Atsushi Sato.. ́It ́s primarily a memorial volume to his daughter Andrea, who was killed in an aeroplane- crash in Guatemala in 1974 (...) Frank can sometimes be self-indulgent as artist, but he can also portray real pain, and capture profound depth of human emotion better than almost any other photographer - in- deed better than almost any other artist in any medium. Flowers is can serve as an eminently fitting apotheosis for stream-of-consciousness photography`... ( Gerry Badger ). Lit.: Parr / Badger, The Photobook: A History, vol.
