Description:

LARGE GELATIN SILVER PRINT of one of Karsh's most iconic images, signed by Karsh in ink on border. "When Yousuf Karsh (1908-2002) traveled to Abiquiu to photograph O'Keeffe in 1956, he. produced an image that suggested her self-assurance and reflected her artistic concerns. Seated in profile in the entryway of her house, O'Keeffe posed under a large set of antlers that appeared in many of her paintings. Karsh wrote that he 'expected to find some of the poetic intensity of her paintings reflected in her personality. Intensity I found, but it was the austere intensity of dedication to her work, which has led Miss O'Keeffe to cut out of her life anything that interferes with her ability to express herself in paint.' As Stieglitz had done in his portraits of the young O'Keeffe, Karsh drew attention to the artist's hands. But for his image of the sixty-nine year old artist, he posed her bent fingers next to a gnarled tree stump and placed her under a deer's skull, alluding to the passage of time and death. As if to balance those dark elements, however, a streak of light coming in from the open doorway falls on O'Keeffe's forehead, wrist, and still-life objects in the composition, serving as a reminder of the inspiration and vitality of the still-practicing artist. According to Karsh, his photograph once hung in her house at Abiquiu" (Susan Danly, "Miss O'Keeffe", Photography and Fame). Size: 20x16 inches (photograph); 29x24 inches (framed). Photograph taken in 1956; printed later (c.1980). Gelatin silver print, signed in ink by Karsh on border, mounted, framed. A large, stunning image in fine condition. Bookseller Inventory #
