Arnold Newman (American, 1918-2006) Andrew Wyeth Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, 1948, printed 1970s, an Abrams Original Edition print. Signed and numbered "© Arnold Newman 4/99" in black ink in the image l.r. Gelatin silver print mounted to board, image/sheet size 19 7/8 x 15 7/8 in. (50.5 x 40.3 cm), unmatted, framed. Condition: Not examined out of frame. N.B. In 1972 the publisher Harry N. Abrams announced a program offering limited edition black-and-white prints by ten eminent photographers. Each photograph (in editions of 99) was made from the original negative by the artist, assisted by a master printer from a custom lab. The photographers, representing a range of practices from photojournalism to creative photography, included Arnold Newman and Gordon Parks (see Lot 102), as well as Wynn Bullock Eliot Elisofon Ernst Haas Philippe Halsman Ken Heyman Marc Riboud Aaron Siskind and Howard Sochurek. With Abrams Original Editions, noted the project's founder and director Peter Pollack "limited signed editions of the best work by these photo craftsmen can be as successful as limited signed editions of fine etchings and lithographs have been in the art world." Pollack added, "It is another source of income for photographers and it puts a good value on photographic prints which have been made with painstaking care. It may also prove to be an investment for knowledgeable collectors." [1] [1] Quoted in a feature by Irving Desfor, The Kokomo Tribune, Kokomo, Indiana, September 27, 1972, p. 35.
