Classic art deco design elements are evident in this beautiful nude study by the deco era photographer known for his artistic renderings of the nude. This photogravure is printed on fine satin/matte finish stock and is blank on the reverse side. Critically acclaimed throughout his career, Walter Bird who was initially trained as a painter, created masterful art deco style photographs of the nude female form during the 1920′s through the 1940′s. A true master of lighting and composition, Bird’s nude studies were well known for both visual drama and artistic beauty. Today his work is sought after by collectors and held in numerous important collections throughout the world. His nudes from the 1930′s in any form (silver gelatin or photogravure) are now very scarce. Please note that a computer scan cannot render nor do justice to the beauty, detail and subtle tonality of the actual print. 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” grid, excellent pressing of ink and a wide range of tone – all indicative of a high quality sheet fed gravure print.

ABOUT PHOTOGRAVURE: Photogravure (also known as Héliogravure) is an intaglio print making process utilizing a carefully etched copper plate made from the original negative/image. Prints are made by pressing suitable paper heavily down upon the inked copper plate which has been intricately etched to varying depths corresponding with the actual tonality of the original negative, This precisely etched plate combined with a fine “honeycomb” screen controls the amount of ink to be transfered to the paper at any given point in direct proportion to the variation of tone in the original image. The result is a true continuous tone print which combines many qualities of a traditional silver based photograph with a tactile feel similar to an etching, engraving or lithograph. Rich in tonal detail, the photogravure process produces delicately rendered shades for a look which is unique in the world of photographic print making. In the early to mid 1900′s photogravure was selected (when budgets allowed) for special high quality publishing and portfolio projects, but due to it’s significant expense and labor, the process is rarely seen today. From Man Ray and Ruth Bernhard to Brett Weston and Ansel Adams, many of the world’s most renown photographic masters have published their images in the rich photogravure process.
