HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON (1908-2004) Portrait d' Alberto Giacometti, vers 1946 signé et dédicacé ' C'est lui, à James avec l'amitié d'Henri' à l'encre (montage, recto); signé et annoté par James Lord ' When Henri gave this photo, he said that it was a very early print and consequently more what he wanted in relation to Alberto than later photos. I would judge it to have been taken shortly before the war, c.1938 (see Henri's little book: Albert Giacometti photographié par Henri Cartier-Bresson plate No.14' à l'encre (montage, verso) tirage argentique monté sur support cartonné image: 24.9 x 34.5 cm. montage: 27.5 x 36.8 cm. signed and dedicated ' C'est lui, à James avec l'amitié d'Henri' in ink (mount, recto); signed and annoted by James Lord ' When Henri gave this photo, he said that it was a very early print and consequently more what he wanted in relation to Alberto than later photos. I would judge it to have been taken shortly before the war, c.1938 (see Henri's little book: Albert Giacometti photographié par Henri Cartier-Bresson plate No.14' in ink (mount, verso) gelatin silver print mounted on card support image: 9 ¾ x 13 5/8 in. mount: 10 ¾ x 14 ½ in.)
