About This Image
Estate number 'H226' in pencil and annotated 'CP#4' in ink on mount verso. Provenance: Andre Kertesz Estate. A rare earlier print that was used in André Kertész's important "Concerned Photographer" exhibitions, 1967-69. This is a very different and superior print to the ones printed in the late 1970s and 1980s.
