Lot Details

Lot 71
EUGENE, FRANK [but now reattributed to HERTH, ANNA] The Cat,
1916. Photogravure from Camera Work XLVIII, 8 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches (221 x 172 mm) [printed by F. Bruckmann Verlag, Munich]. Unmounted, fine. Framed.
Often credited to Frank Eugene (indeed, in the issue of Camera Work itself, this was the case), this image was in fact produced by his student Anna Herth, and had been published under her name in Deutsche Kunst Und Dekoration... volume 27, p. 344. My thanks to Mark Katzman (and his excellent website www.photogravure.com) for this information; see also Ulrich Pohlmann et al, Frank Eugene: The Dream of Beauty (Munich: Nazraeli Press and Fotomuseum im Muenchner Stadtmuseum, 1995), pp. 133, 329, and 345, fn. 175.
