Catalogue Note

The photograph offered here comes originally from the collection of Vittorio Vidali (1900 - 1983), Tina Modotti's close friend and companion during the last 15 years of her life.  Entrusted with Modotti's negatives after her death, the Vidali family gave the photographer Manual Álvarez Bravo, who had known Modotti, an opportunity to print from some of these negatives in the 1970s.  Experimenting with varying papers and printing techniques, Bravo produced a small number of posthumous prints before the negatives were donated to the Museo del la Fotografia in Pachuca, Mexico, in 1979.  Two Bravo prints of Modotti's famous 'Roses' have been offered in these rooms previously: in April of 2007 (Sale 8309, Lot 19) and April 2006 (Sale 8189, Lot 124).
