'One Year Old Mountain Gorilla, Rwanda,' 1994


Unique object, printed later. Silver print, signed, titled, dated, annotated 'Peter Beard Box 47616 Nairobi Kenya' and 'But past who can recall, or done undo? from Paradise Lost' in black ink and red paint on the image, illustrated with a handprint. Framed.

Image 60.7 x 91.5 cm (24 x 54 in.)

Frame 105.3 x 136.5 cm (41 1/2 x 53 3/4 in.)

While this print has not been examined outside its frame, it appears in very good condition. As is usual with Peter Beard works, presence of a few handling marks and some small drips of paints across the print, only visible under raking light. Subtle undulation along upper print edge associated with the mounting process. The inscription in the lower part of the image is slightly faded, but the impression of the pen renders the writing legible.
