'DETROIT' (DRIVE-IN MOVIE)
signed, titled, and dated in ink in the margin, mounted, overmatted, 1955, possibly printed in the 1960s (The Americans, no. 46)
8¾ by 13⅛ in. (22.2 by 33.3 cm.)
This print, on paper with a surface sheen, is in generally very good condition. It is overmatted and mounted so that the margins and reverse cannot be examined. When viewed in raking light, small linear impressions that do not appear to break the emulsion are visible in the upper right and left quadrants, as are a few scattered deposits of original retouching.
When examined under ultraviolet light, this print does not appear to fluoresce.
