August Sander, Untitled (Portrait of a Family), c. 1905, Auction 1068 Photography, Lot 10

August Sander

Herdorf 1876 - 1964 Cologne

Untitled (Portrait of a Family)

c. 1905

Vintage gelatin silver print. 14.8 x 10.2 cm. Flush-mounted to original card, printed name of the studio below the image as well as on the reverse of the mount.

This shot was made in 1905, when the young photographer August Sander had just opened his first studio in Linz. Despite being such an early print, the work already displays the most prominent formal characteristics of Sander's works, namely the sober, frontal and precise depiction of the sitter.
