(June 3, 1902 November 8, 1957). It is in really good condition with no real flaws to describe. The only thing I notice is right around the inside of the border there is a kind of grayish refection, depending upon how the light is striking the print. It disappears when viewing the print straight on with the light hitting it directly. Not really sure what causes this effect, but it really doesn’t detract from the image. I have provided both a photograph and a scan of the print. The photograph shows better the actual tone of the print. Is made on sturdy double weight fiber base paper with a pleasing warm tone and a textured luster surface, even white borders. The edges and corners are in great shape. The back of the print is clean. This print is from an estate and has been in storage for many years. A really amazing example of George Quaintance photography. Here is some information about the artist that I found out from knowledgeable collectors and my own online research. George Quaintance was a gay American artist, famous for his “idealized, strongly homoerotic” depictions of men in mid-20th-century physique magazines. He was known more for his paintings then his photography. Unfortunately, he died at the age of 55 in 1957. George may have been mainly a painter, but this is a really beautiful photography in my opinion. Thank-you for visiting our auctions!
