YALE COMMENCEMENT – NEW HAVEN GREEN, NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT
signed, dated, and annotated 'New Haven' in ink in the margin, the Robert Frank Archive and copyright stamps, with credit, date, and annotations in pencil, on the reverse, 1956, printed later (The Americans, no. 21)
8⅜ by 12½ in. (21.3 by 31.8 cm.)
This print is in generally excellent condition. The lower right margin corner is bumped and there are handling creases in the upper margin.
On the reverse, the copyright stamp has been annotated in ink by an unidentified hand, 'Robert Frank 1979.' The Robert Frank Archive stamp includes '21' and '723' in pencil. Other annotations in pencil include 'R.F.OI.499' and '81.' There is a small smudge, possibly ink, near the upper edge. The paper is lightly abraded in two areas along the upper edge, likely from previous hinges.
