The frame is on custom-made, black solid wood with Plexi-Glass. Printed on archival, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark eponymous exhibition held at the Douglas Kenyon Gallery in 1982. Presents E. J. Bellocq's "Untitled Nude". The image is from one of the most unforgettable sequences of vernacular photographs by a largely unknown photographer ever re-discovered. "Taken around 1912, the photographs constitute the only surviving work of the photographer whose work is now considered among the most intriguingly and beguilingly erotic female nude photographs ever made. All of the subjects who posed for E. J. Bellocq were prostitutes and the combination of uninhibited sensuality and sweet candor makes these portraits unique in the history of photography" (MOMA). Bellocq was clearly a regular paying patron of his subjects, which is how he gained photographic (aside from sexual) access to and intimacy with them. An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for E. J. Bellocq collectors. This Exhibition Poster is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: It is elegantly framed, and will be packed carefully for both domestic (and where feasible, international) transit. A rare copy thus. One 18 X 24 framed poster. One of the most important American photographers of the 20th century. A flawless copy.
