 'Grand Cañon'


gelatin silver print, signed and titled in pencil in the margin, framed, 1927, printed circa 1929

image: 5 1/2 by 7 3/4 in. (14 by 19.7 cm.)

frame: 18 3/4 by 23 in. (47.6 by 58.4 cm.)

This exceptionally detailed early print is in generally excellent condition. It is appropriately age-darkened overall. In the margins there are some tiny glossy deposits and some paper remnants, possibly from a previous mat.


On the reverse, there is a tacky adhesive remnant. 'AA/2258' is written in pencil in an unidentified hand.
