Certificate Of Authenticity (COA): Yes - individual hand signed COA from Fine Photo Galleries.This is an original (NOT a modern reprint) vintage 1936 Art Deco high quality offset color print by the renown English photographer John Everard. This is not a photogravure or chemical process print - it is a vintage photo-mechanical offset print (also known as a photo engraving) made from the original negative/image in 1936. This photo engraving is guaranteed to be authentic and comes with a hand signed CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY (COA) with unique individual registered serial number from the Finephoto Vintage Archive & Database. Computer scans simply cannot do justice nor render the soft color palette and rich tonality of the actual print itself. The watermark word "Finephoto" does not appear on the actual print. The beautiful color work of John Everard is seldom seen in any form - primarily because it was only produced in very limited editions for a short time in the mid 1930's. This is not a photogravure or silver gelatin print - it is a high quality offset print created with a special 5 color process under the supervision of John Everard. Normal color reproduction in the 1930's used (and generally still does today) a four color process, which at the time was quite costly. Obsessed with color accuracy and quality of print, Everard went to great lengths to ensure complete perfection in the output of his color work and thus employed a special 5 color process for his limited edition color work in the 1930's. The blocks for this print were etched by the famous English plate makers John Swain & Son, Ltd. Under the supervision of John Everard. John Everard used Dufay reversal film (transparency) almost exclusively for his color work - it had a uniquely beautiful palette unmatched by anything else of the day. These color images were made with a large format 8x10 view camera and according to Everard's notes at the time, exposure time for his outdoor color nudes could be a full 3 seconds and exposure time for his indoor nudes could range all the way to 10 seconds - during which the model had to hold perfectly still!
In the 1930's, color photography was in its infancy and therefor color work by history's greatest photographers of that period is seldom seen. To produce color work during that time required enormous efforts but, the results could be absolutely stunning - even by today's standards. Unique color palettes of 1930's reversal/negative films (such as Dufay & Finlay) and exacting work by highly skilled etchers & separators, resulted in images that were and are unique in the history of photography. Many feel that this unique "vintage" look aesthetically surpasses today's often highly manipulated color imagery. READY FOR FRAMING & DISPLAY!
