Photogravure proves itself at Swann

The value of the hand pulled photogravure is emerging as witnessed in last weeks aution entitled, ‘Photographic Literature’ at Swann in New York. The three top lots of this red-hot genre contained hand-pulled photogravures.
Doris Ulmann’s Roll, Jordan, Roll (New York, 1933) sold for $33,600. Alvin Langdon Coburn’s, New York (London & New York, 1910) netted a record $28,800, and an issue of Camera Work, Number 36, with 16 Stieglitz photogravures was had for $20,400.
More encouraging is that these lots were purchased by dealers, implying that the retail value of this work is significantly higher.
