SOPHIE CALLE

B. 1953

WEDDING DRESS (FROM AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL STORIES)


a diptych comprised of a gelatin silver print and a text panel, each mounted to aluminum, framed to the photographer's specifications, Fred Hoffman Gallery labels on the reverse, 1988-89, no. 2 in an edition of 5 (2)

photograph: 65 by 39 in. (165.1 by 99.1 cm.)

text panel: 18⅜ by 18⅜ in. (46.7 by 46.7 cm.)

While this diptych has not been examined unframed, it appears to be in generally excellent condition. 


Photograph: The sheet and aluminum mount might be very slightly buckled at the center of the print, but they do not come in contact with the acrylic glazing of the frame.


Text panel: Visible only in raking light is a faint linear impression in the right portion running parallel to the right edge. There is a brown mark in the lower left quadrant, possibly a result of processing.
