Trimmed to the image and mounted, this silver print is in overall very good condition. With an even tone and beautiful contrasts, and crisp, sharp details throughout, particularly in Kinski's face. With sporadic retouching marks, superficial dents and very light surface scratches, only visible in raking light and out of the frame, and all as expected for a work of this age. A beautiful, rich print of this iconic image.
