Signed by the photographer on the mount, with his stamp to verso. 25x17cm. (print), 42x30cm. (mount). Harold Chapman, widely known for chronicling Paris during the '50s and '60s, in particular the Beat Hotel, photographed Ferlinghetti during his visit to Paris in 1965, where he was a participant in Jean-Jacques Lebel's International Festival of Free Expression. Cibachrome prints, made from a colour transparency enlarged directly onto reversal colour Ciba-Geigy paper, are of an exceptionally high quality, and this portrait, thought to be unpublished, has a striking immediacy and intimacy. Near Fine.
