chromogenic print, signed, titled, dated, and annotated in ink on the reverse, framed, 1979, printed in the early 1980s (Moure, Ana Mendieta, p. 65)
6¾ by 10 in. (15.9 by 25.4 cm.)
This chromogenic print is in generally very good condition. As is typical of the photographer's lifetime chromogenic prints, the colors appear somewhat muted overall and may have faded with age. When examined in raking light, 2 soft handling creases that do not appear to break the emulsion are visible in the right portion of the image.
The reverse is faintly yellowed at the periphery. '2' [circled] is written in an unidentified hand in pencil on the reverse.
