'Sunbaker'. Max DUPAIN.


An original gelatin silver photograph (image size 367 × 404 mm) signed and dated in pencil ('Dupain '37') in the bottom right-hand corner, float-mounted as originally offered for sale, with the title 'Sunbaker' written in pencil by Dupain on the mount below the image. The verso of the mount is inscribed in pencil by the photographer ('"Sunbaker" | Max Dupain '37'), and in another hand, 'Print made Jan 84'. There is a short fine surface scratch running vertically near the bottom edge in the middle foreground, well clear of the subject; notwithstanding, this is a superb example of an image that should require no further introduction ...

Provenance: private collection, Melbourne (purchased by the collector direct from Ray Hughes Gallery in Brisbane in 1984, recently rematted in the original frame).
