ROBERT FRANK | 'HOBOKEN' (CITY FATHERS)
'HOBOKEN' (CITY FATHERS)
gelatin silver print, signed, titled, and dated in ink in the margin, 1955, printed later (The Americans, no. 2, variant cropping)
9¾ by 13 in. (24.8 by 33 cm.)
This print is in generally good to very good condition. The photograph may be sunned: the left edge of the image (an area measuring approximately 1-1/2-inch wide) is more neutral in tonality than the rest of the image corresponding to where the photograph had been covered by a previous overmat. The ink signature, title, and date remain robust and legible.
There is minor margin edge and corner wear. On the reverse, there are two old hinge remnants at the upper edge. 'PF16910' and '384' are annotated in an unidentified hand in pencil.
