a group of 5 unique large-format Polaroid Polacolor prints, 3 signed and dated in ink in the margin, each framed, 1984-87 (5) 

images: each approximately 29 by 22 in. (73.7 by 55.9 cm.)

frames: each 35 ½ by 29 ½ in. (90.2 by 74.9 cm.)

Please note the colors and shades in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings. These large-format Polacolor prints are in generally very good condition. Each print is somewhat faded, as evidenced by a slightly darker strip at the periphery where the photograph was covered by an overmat. As is typical of Polaroid prints in this format, the lower margin edge is unevenly trimmed. There are scattered fingerprints, scuffs, and occasional handling creases, some of which appear to break the emulsion but do not affect the overall fine quality of these prints.Individual condition notes are as follows:
