Andre Kertesz

SIGNED ANDRÉ KERTÉSZ PHOTOGRAPH OF SOUTH CAROLINA, ALSO CAPTIONED IN HIS HAND

KERTÉSZ, André. Photographic print, “Three Lawn Jockeys” [New York: circa 1972]. Original silver gelatin print, measuring 8 by 10 inches. $2500.

Photograph printed by Kertész’s studio, signed, dated and captioned by him, apparently produced to promote the publication of Sixty Years of Photography.

Kertész was “one of the first photographers to demonstrate the tremendous richness of the street… his work is known for its wit, composition, and sense of the unusual” (Blodgett, 96). This print of “Three Lawn Jockeys” is apparently unpublished. Studio stamp on verso. Captioned in pencil in Kertész’s hand on the verso, “Aiken [South Carolina], Apr. 14— 1953.”

Fine condition, boldly signed.
