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.

    I saw on another site that O’Keefe had her moon (and other plenats as well) in scorpio in the 12th house. This could also help explain why she denied the sexual aspect of her work, she was actually unaware of it on some level, or at least didn’t want it to be seen. Tracy Marks book “Your Secret Self” also mentions the myth of Demeter as relevant to the moon in the 12th. I remember reading in O’Keefe’s bio that she used to work in isolation for half the year in the desert in NM, then go to NY to Stieglitz to sell her work. You can’t get more Persephone like than that!I also have scorpio moon in the 12th and have found this way of working as an artist to be both appealing and useful.

  3. Niinpä, Marja Leena, uudet yhteydenpitämisen tavat muuttavat elämäämme, blogi muiden mukana. Huomaan, että minulle bloginkirjoittaminen on tapa olla yhteydessä muihin, en kirjoita sitä itseäni varten. Itseäni varten kirjoitan käsin pieneen vihkoon kuten olen aina tehnyt. Jatkan blogin kirjoittamista kun on niin mukava tuntea, että voi jakaa ajatuksia, omiaan ja muiden vaikkei henkilökohtaisesti tuntisikaan heitä.

  4. Regarding the whole NCAA Violations matter, I truly think that the NCAA needs to either be more efficient – and thereby more of a martinet – or become more realistic in their evaluations. While I have absolutely no use for the likes of “Cal-the-Lip”, this current Bledsoe thingy is a waste of time, money, and newspaper ink … The NCAA ought to simply follow the olde adage of “Follow the Money” !!! No $$$, no violation … By $$$ I mean the disbursement of anything by anyone (school, booster, or supplier) to anyone associated with the kid !!!Seems pretty simple and realistic to me !!!

  5. Obama has managed in one year to destroy the "moderate" Clinton brand the last Democratic President laboriously spent a decade building. The Democrats have to run for re-election defending their record on the deficit, high taxes and high unemployment. They made their own bed and now have to sleep in it.
