About This Image

Printed by Berenice Abbott from Atget's damaged negatives with a "Eugene Atget Photograph, Collection Berenice Abbott" stamp on verso, plus other handwriting. This image set a World Auction Record for Atget at $686,500 in a print by Atget himself, and this may be one of the earliest prints of the image made by Abbott. Prints of this image by Abbott are scarce and sought after. Provenance: from the artist about 1960 to photographer Maggie Smith, life partner of W.Eugene Smith. See: Nesbit, Atget's Seven Albums, Fortifications de Paris, p.112, pl.91; 20th-Century Photography Museum Ludwig Cologne, (Tachen 1996) p.27; Borcoman, Eugene Atget 1857-1927, (Galerie Nationale du Canada, Ottawa, 1984), p.108.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
