Heinrich Kühn

c. 1910

Multiple oil transfer print on structured card. 23.3 x 30.1 cm (27.3 x 33 cm). Signed and numbered 'No. 28' as well as handwritten notes for the reproduction on the verso.

The remarks in pencil on the verso suggest that the present bromoil print served as a template for the reproduction of the motif in Kühn's textbook 'Technik der Lichbildnerei' (Techniques of Photography). All in all, Kühn chose only three motifs for his important book; apart from 'Kirchenausgang', the others are the still life with tomatoes (see lot 221) and a portrait of Lotte.
