signed in ink and embossed in the margin, framed, an Andrew Smith Gallery label on the reverse, 1954, printed later (Cartier-Bresson: Photographer, pl. 141)

17⅝ by 11¾ in. (44.8 by 29.9 cm.)

This print is in generally excellent condition. As is typical of Cartier-Bresson's later prints, upon examination in raking light, scattered deposits of original retouching are visible throughout. The print is slightly rippled along the right margin edge.


'HCB/1090' is written in an unidentified hand in pencil on the reverse.
