condition

This stunning, early print is on lush double-weight paper with a smooth surface. It exhibits velvety, chocolate dark tones and nuanced mid-tones and highlights. Exceptional detail is visible throughout, even in the darkest areas of the image. Despite our best efforts, our catalogue illustration does not do the beauty of the print adequate justice. The large print is in generally excellent condition. Upon close examination, an isolated series of small, linear creases is visible in the upper left quadrant, to the left of the sitter. While these small creases appear to break the emulsion, there does not appear to be any loss of emulsion. Extending from the right edge of the print is a small, soft, horizontal crease that does not appear to break the emulsion, and there are a few insignificant soft handling creases overall that are only visible upon close examination in raking light. None of the aforementioned detracts in any way from this exceptional, rare print. On the reverse of the print at the lower corners are 2 small glue remnants. The date '1934’ is in pencil on the reverse, and ‘4’ appears to be written over ‘2’. The photograph is tipped along its upper edge to a large buff paper mount, the overall dimensions of which measure 25-1/4 by 17-1/2 inches. The mount is signed and dated by Rodchenko. An annotation in Cyrillic, possibly referring to another photograph by Rodchenko, has been cancelled in graphite. There is subtle, age-appropriate darkening to the large paper mount, primarily at the edges and in the area covered by the print. Along the upper and lower edges of the mount, there is creasing as well as some small losses and tears. This does not in any way affect the photograph and is not visible when viewing the photograph framed. On the reverse of the mount along the lower-right edge is a paper-tape remnant. When examined under ultraviolet light, this photograph does not appear to fluoresce.
