Lot 4126, Auction  118, Burchartz, Max, Lotte

Lotte. 1928. Vintage, large-format unique ferrotyped gelatin silver print. 40 x 30,5 cm.

Born in 1887, Max Buchartz studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule Elberfeld and the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. He moved to Weimar in 1921 and in 1926 was appointed professor at the Folkwangschule where he worked until 1933 teaching graphic design, typography and photography.
Burchartz photographed this engaging image of his daughter Lotte during the same shooting when he took the famous image he later cropped as a close up of her eye entitled "Lotte (Auge)", which was included in the Film und Foto exhibition in Stuttgart 1929, and two years later in 1931, it was used as an enlarged mural at the entrance to the exhibition Das Lichtbild in Essen. It is now an icon of modern photography. This is a unique print and there are no existing negatives of this image.
[see comparable illustration of "Lotte (Auge)"] – Two professionally repaired tears, some handling creases, otherwise a fine tonal print.

Provenance: The estate of Max Burchartz
