This is an authentic (NOT a computer scanned reprint), genuine 1992 sheet fed photogravure plate produced from the original 1930's-40's negative/print by the internationally renown photographer Horst P. Horst. One of the most historically significant photographic artists of the 20th century, Horst's iconic fashion and art images are held in important collections and museums throughout the world. This LARGE FOLIO SIZE sheet fed gravure print was originally issued as part of a now scarce, out of print limited edition hardbound photogravure compilation, engraved and printed in high quality sheet fed gravure for Twin Palms Publishers in Tokyo, Japan in 1992. Whether you collect photogravure prints or are simply looking for extraordinary home or business decor, this atmospheric photogravure plate will mat, frame and display beautifully!

photogravure plate is guaranteed to be authentic and comes with a hand signed CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY (COA) with unique individual registered and certified serial number from the Finephoto Vintage Archive & Database. Under magnification this plate shows a tight "honeycomb" grid, excellent pressing of ink and a wide range of tone - all indicative of a high quality sheet fed gravure print. The watermark word "Finephoto" does not appear on the actual print.

ABOUT PHOTOGRAVURE:  Photogravure is an intaglio print making process utilizing a carefully etched copper plate made from the original negative/image. Prints are made by pressing suitable paper heavily down upon the inked copper plate which has been intricately etched to varying depths corresponding with the actual tonality of the original negative, This precisely etched plate combined with a fine "honeycomb" screen controls the amount of ink to be transferred to the paper at any given point in direct proportion to the variation of tone in the original image. The result is a true continuous tone print which combines many qualities of a traditional silver based photograph with a tactile feel similar to an etching, engraving or lithograph. Rich in tonal detail, the photogravure process produces delicately rendered shades for a look which is unique in the world of photographic print making. In the early to mid 1900's photogravure was selected (when budgets allowed) for special high quality publishing and portfolio projects, but due to it's significant expense and labor, the process is rarely seen today. From Man Ray and Ruth Bernhard to Brett Weston and Ansel Adams, many of the world's most renown photographic masters have published their images in the rich photogravure process.
