Heinrich Kühn

Untitled (Heimtrieb)
c. 1900

Combination gum dichromate print on textured water colour paper, varnished. 55.2 x 73.3 cm. Signed in ink lower left. Inscribed in pencil 'Autotypie 20 cm breit' on the verso. - Along the edges slightly bumped and with few small tears..

The pencil note on the verso as well as a comparison of the sheet with the photograph Heimtrieb, reproduced by Matthies-Masuren in 1902, suggest that our copy served as the artwork for the publication.
All four present gum bichromates (lots 14-17) were originally part of the comprehensive collection of photographs by Heinrich Kühn from private collections in Southern Germany, which Lempertz auctioned in autumn 2017.
