RUTH BERNHARD

1905-2006

'IN THE BOX - HORIZONTAL'


gelatin silver print, mounted, signed in pencil on the mount, signed, titled, and dated in pencil on the reverse, 1962, printed later (Ruth Bernhard: The Collection of Ginny Williams, pl. 32)

7½ by 13½ in. (19.1 by 34.3 cm.)

This photograph is in generally excellent condition. Upon very close examination, there is a minuscule chip to the emulsion at the edge of the lower left corner. There are 4 pinpoint rust spots in the upper portion of the mount. On the reverse, 'B360' and 'GR975-2' are in an unidentified hand in pencil. There is also an errant smudge of graphite.
