[New York], 1934. Original borderless sepia silver print, 24 x 19 cm (9 3/8 x 7 3/8 inches). Faint oxidation along left and upper edges, otherwise very good or better. A superb image, in Valente's distinctive style, identified on the verso in a later hand as from a production of Elmer Rice's play, "Judgement Day" [sic] (corrected from "We , the People"), and with the photographer's stamp "Proof Property of Alfred Valente." Rice's play was a political work, mirroring the Reichstag Trial, and played at his the Belasco Theatre Sept. Dec. 1934. The image is of an unidentified prisoner, in manacles, seated on the floor, awash in shadow and light. Valente (1899 - 1973), rose to considerable prominence in the 1930s as the photographer for the Group Theatre, and by the end of the decade was the one of the leading theatrical photographers for the NYT and other major periodicals. His stint as a Hollywood still photographer included such major and visually rich productions as LOST HORIZON.

A HOMBRE Y EXPRESIÓN [Whole Number One]

Vallanueva, Sarlos Raul, et al [editors]

  • Quantity available: 1
Caracas, Venezuela: Sociedad Editora A., 1954. Whole number one (of four published). Quarto. Decorated stiff wrappers. Photographs, renderings and illustrations. Forecorners bumped a bit, but a very good copy. Edited by Vallaneuva, Ramón Losada and Juan Pedro Posani. The first number of this short- lived, high quality periodical devoted to considerations of architecture, city planning, sculpture, painting, photography, film and literature. It involved printing in color and b&w on a variety of stocks, unconventional typography, and a sensibility partaking of optimism and forward-thinking. Although intended to appear quarterly, because of the cost of production only four numbers appeared, the last in July 1957- a fifth issue was in preparation, but was not published. Scarce: OCLC cites only four locations: MoMA, Yale, MIT and UT Austin.
