FINE PHOTO GALLERIES is pleased to present an authentic (NOT A MODERN REPRINT), vintage 1966 sheet-fed photogravure (also known as Héliogravure) from an image by German born, American photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt. It was created from the original negative/print. One of the most prolific and historically important photographers of the 20th century, Eisenstaedt achieved prominence as a photojournalist and worked as a staff photographer for Life Magazine from 1936 to 1972. He achieved widespread acclaim for his human interest photographs, candid images of celebrities and news events.
A pioneer in the use of "miniature cameras", Eisenstaedt primarily used smaller cameras and natural lighting as opposed to the bulky 4 x 5 cameras with flash attachments most press photographers and photojournalists of the day favored. Today he is considered one of the great photographers of the 20th century with his work is held in important collections and museums throughout the world. Whether you collect vintage photogravure prints or are simply looking for extraordinary home or business decor, this authentic vintage 1966 photogravure will frame and display beautifully!

ABOUT PHOTOGRAVURE: Photogravure is an intaglio printmaking 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 its 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 renowned photographic masters have published their images in the rich photogravure process.
