Using the checklist for the Au Sacre du Printemps exhibition as a guide, Toronto photographs dealer Jane Corkin was able to loosely recreate this landmark show by adding 16 more photographs to the newly discovered group. Corkin had known Kertész personally, and she became a representative for his estate after his death. The entire group, including this print of Behind Notre Dame, was ultimately sold in an historic auction in New York in 1997.
