A SINGULAR AESTHETIC. Photographs & Drawings 1921-1941. A Catalog Raisonne.

Santa Barbara: Arabesque Books, 1981. First edition. Hardcover. 4to. The three-dimensional front cover of this volume with its mounted hinged mat displays one of Outerbridge's most famous Carbro-color prints. "WOMAN WITH CLAWS." With the hinged mat lifted, that part of the original image subsequently edited out by Outerbridge can be examined, allowing the viewer to study the aesthetic of Outerbridge's editorial process. His original intention was to objectify the model, evidenced by the mask; however, the full intention was not achieved until the final presentation, the over matting. One of 1500 (our research reveals only 400 or less were produced). A fine copy in a very good plus original glassine printed dust jacket. Item #14483
ISBN: 0876855400

Price: $850.00
