Winston Churchill “test print photograph”, printed from Philippe Halsman’s famous original portrait 

 

Silver gelatin photograph of Winston Churchill by the photographer Philippe Halsman (Russian-American, 1906-1979), featured on the November 2, 1953 cover of LIFE magazine. "First edition" photograph, 8” x 10”. Circa 1950. Fine Condition.

 

The former owner explains that the print was found among the remains of a long since closed and neglected studio in a small town in the Midwest. Due to slight imperfections in the processing of the image, the owner believes that the photographer attended one of Halsman's workshops and was given the imperfect "throwaway print" as a gift. The print is not signed, which is typical of test printing. 

 

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
