In 1978 Richard Avedon prepared the
"Portfolio of Eleven from Paris" in conjunction with his
retrospective exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. The
images are from those taken in Paris during the late 1940's and early
1950's. To present this limited edition (75) portfolio of images,
Avedon prepared an exquisite presentation portfolio of the same images
specially printed by
offset lithography. This presentation portfolio has now become a
collector's piece. It is this presentation portfolio that is offered here.
Shown above is the cover as well as three of the eleven images in this portfolio.
The portfolio measures 8 x 10 inches. The images are
c. 5 x 6 1/4 inches centered on 8 x 10 inch heavy stock. Each has
the image title, etc. printed on the lower left. The portfolio is
in perfect condition; it is not signed.
