Registered Vintage Print Serial #. Vintage 1959 photogravure (also known as a héliogravure) by the internationally renowned Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh.
This vintage sheet fed gravure plate was printed in quality photogravure by the highly regarded engraving house of Joh. Enschedé en Zonen, Haarlem , Netherlands in 1959. The paper is of fine quality and the prints themselves are simply beautiful to behold. Karsh himself wrote the following words regarding these richly crafted photogravures: for the first time the photographs that have been my life's work were reproduced by a mechanical process with complete fidelity. So true is the result, indeed, that friends have said they find it difficult to distinguish between these photogravure plates and the hand-printed originals from my darkroom.
The production of these plates involved considerable technical achievement. But technology is only a means to an end. More significant and gratifying to me is that many thousands of people, who previously may not have seen an original Karsh photographic print but had to rely on the often inadequate reproduction of standard printing methods, were now able to see the fine details, the subtle graduations, the delicate nuances which reveal underlying character. Yousuf Karsh's iconic photographic portraits are held in museums and important photography collections throughout the world.This photogravure is guaranteed to be authentic and comes with a hand signed CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY (COA) with unique individual registered serial number from the Finephoto Archive & Database. Under magnification this plate shows a tight "honeycomb" cell structure, uniform pressing of ink and a wide range of tone - all indicative of a high quality sheet fed gravure plate. The watermark word "Finephoto" does not appear on the actual print. READY FOR FRAMING & DISPLAY! - The expensive engraved copper plate photogravure process and the resulting fine prints make vintage photogravures highly collectible and excellent vintage prints for framing.
