    A photogravure by Edward Steichen. This work comes from a remarkable collection of photogravures which exemplify the drama images so characteristic of Steichen’s work. The prints can, as Alfred Stieglitz wrote in 1905, be considered original in that each is “printed in the spirit of the original picture.” Comes with a certificate of authenticity.

    Edward Steichen came to prominence as photographer during the last decade of the 19th century. Steichen printed his negatives on platinum paper or by hand-coating paper with a mixture that produced a soft impressionistic focus. Together with Alfred Stieglitz, Steichen helped create the seminal Photo-Secession movement. In time, Steichen developed a completely new photographic style, mastering a technique that called for sharp focus and dramatic lighting.
