THIS IS A REALLY GREAT PIECE. IRVING BROWNING IS ONE OF THE MORE IMPORTANT NEW YORK CITY PHOTOGRAPHERS OF THE 20TH CENTURY. KNOWN FOR HIS EARLY IMAGES OF THE SKYSCRAPER ARCHITECTURE OF NEW YORK, HIS WORKS ARE UNIVERSALLY KNOWN. YOU CAN FIND MANY OF HIS IMAGES IN THE NEW YORK HISTORICAL SOCIETY AS WELL AS OTHER MUSEUMS.

THIS IS A PARTICULARLY RARE PHOTOGRAPH BECAUSE OF ITS SIZE. IMAGE MEASURES 24 X 16 1/2 INCHES. SIGNED AND DATED WITHIN THE IMAGE LOWER RIGHT CORNER. BASED ON THE RESEARCH I HAVE DONE, THIS BUILDING WAS COMPLETE IN LATE 1928 SO THIS WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE FIRST DOCUMENTS OF THIS NEW ADDITION TO THE NEW YORK SKYLINE. OVERALL THE PHOTO IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.

CLEAR WITH ONLY A FEW MINOR ISSUES. THE ENTIRE SURFACE OF THE IMAGE SHOWS THE CRACKLING THAT HAPPENS WITH THESE SILVER GELATIN PHOTOS. THERE ARE ALSO A FEW VERY MINOR SOILING SPOTS WITHIN THE IMAGE BUT YOU CAN REALLY ONLY SEE THEM WITH CLOSE INSPECTION. OVERALL IT IS A FINE EXAMPLE OF A VERY SCARCE PRINT. DO YOUR RESEARCH ON THIS PHOTOGRAPHER AND HIS WORKS.

DONT MISS THIS CHANCE TO ACQUIRE AN EARLY PIECE OF NEW YORK CITY. EVEN THE NEW YORK HISTORICAL SOCIETY HAS USED HIS PHOTOGRAPHS FOR INSPIRATION OF A LINE OF JEWELRY. ORIGINAL MATTE, GLASS, AND FRAME SHOULD PROBABLY BE REPLACED WITH NEW ARCHIVAL MATERIALS. A PRIZE ADDITION TO ANY PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTION. FRAME MEASURES 30 3/4 X 23 1/2 INCHES.

CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS GREAT PIECE. PICTURES ARE AN EXCELLENT INDICATION OF CONDITION.
