Richard Avendon "Nastassja Kinski and the Serpent: Photographed by Richard Avedon"
Nastassja Kinski and the Serpent: Photographed by Richard Avedon. Signed poster in graphite lower center. Distributed by Gallery Prints, Inc., 611 Dumaine St., New Orleans, LA, 70116, USA. 1-504-522-2192. Copyright 1981. Measures: 24.5" x 35.9375". Full four color offset lithographic print on heavy white gloss stock.
I ordered this directly from American Photographer Magazine March 1982 issue. The unsigned version sold for $20.00 and this signed version sold for $40.00 plus shipping. Stored in a Plexiglass poster frame with 100% cotton Cranes cover stock between poster and backing board for archival integrity. Stored in smoke free environment with low light conditions and never exposed to direct sunlight. Bright and vibrant colors, as new. **Zero defects: no holes, no scratches, no tears, and no creases. It is rare to discover one of these posters in this impressive condition. (Original mailing tube discarded as it was not archival for storage).
**NOTE: As typical in offset printing (4-color process lithography or 4-color printing) the paper stock used is not archival quality. Despite the best attempt at long-term storage the paper stock has "foxing" - yellow spots - as shown on reverse side. The front is in good condition because of the heavy ink coverage with only slight foxing in the background. When framed and matted this will make a fine presentation of an important photographic study.
