1955. Silver gelatin cameraless photograph, image size 15 13/16 x 19 1/2 inch [40.1 x 49.5 cm.] on double weight silver gelatin stock, drymounted to card stock of equal size. There is a 2 inch long but narrow crease which has cause cracking at the lower right corner, and tiny cracks at the bottom and upper left corners, with a sliver of loss at the upper right. There are a few tiny indents on the surface. An unusually large Photogenic Drawing and a near very good print. Lotte Jacobi was primarily a portrait photographer, born in Thorn, West Prussia in 1896, of a long line of German photographers. She operated a photographic studio in Berlin and later in New York and Deering, New Hampshire. Beginning in 1946 and largely concluding in 1951, Jacobi experimented with cameraless photography, "painting" the photographic paper with modulated light sources, cellophane and glass. She named these Photogenics. Given the patina visible in the darkest black, this image is certainly from this period.
