an authentic (NOT a modern reprint) vintage 1967 photogravure by the
internationally renown Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh. This
sheet fed gravure plate was originally issued as part of a now rare
bound photogravure portfolio, engraved and printed in high quality
gravure by Joh. Enschedé En Zonen, Haarlem in the Netherlands in 1967.
The paper is of fine quality and the prints themselves are simply
beautiful to behold. Karsh himself wrote about the superb quality of
these 1967 photogravure plates with the following words: "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 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 Vintage Archive & Database. Under
magnification this plate shows a tight "honeycomb" grid, excellent
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.
