Lot Details

Gianfranco Gorgoni, Robert Rauschenberg, c. 1975. Gelatin silver print, 9.875 x 7.75 inches, 25.1 x 19.7 cm. Stamped.

Print used for reproduction purposes and shows signs of handling. A patina of dings and impressions and indentations throughout visible only in raking light; some crimps and creases along left, right, and top sides visible mainly in raking light or close scrutiny. Spots breaching the gelatin coating on shoulder lower right quandrant.

Born in Italy, Gorgoni seeks to capture the small concerns of everyday life and the joys and sorrows of ordinary people. As a reporter, Gorgoni has been to many parts of the world where current events have unfolded before his eyes. He spent a night in a cell in Iran where he observed police brutality, witnessed the surprise visit by President Sadat of Egypt to the State of Israel, took the last photograph of the Argentinean warship Belgrano before the English sank it a few days later, and became acquainted with Fidel Castro in his attempt to document the real life of Cubans through photography.
