American photographer Charles Berg (1856-1926) had this portrait study titled Coquette (def: a woman who flirts) included in one of the very early issues of Camera Notes, (1898: vol. 1, no. 4) the groundbreaking journal of photography which was the organ of The New York Camera Club edited by Alfred Stieglitz. Trimmed from the original plate, this vintage hand-pulled photogravure is printed in sepia and laid down on an oversized card mount.
Faint abrasion in the form of a line about 2.5 cm located on image located near top of model's wrist; slight closed surface tear to card recto on left margin; some staining and corner bumping to mount. Please inspect both photographs with listing. (please email if you require additional photos)
