Iconic Limited Edition Fred Stein Photo of Albert Einstein
Stunning large gelatin silver limited edition photograph; one of the most iconic images of the 20th century. One of only 450 in the edition. “In 1946, when Albert Einstein was in residence at Princeton University, Fred Stein was granted ten minutes of the great man's time to take a portrait. After the time was up, Einstein's secretary came in to usher Stein out. However, Einstein insisted that he stay, saying that their discussion was too interesting to cut short. The secretary came back repeatedly, but the visit extended to two hours. The resulting portrait by Fred Stein pictures a deep intelligence engaged in thought. It became an iconic image, and one of the most famous photographs ever taken of Albert Einstein" (Dawn Freer, "Fred Stein: A Retrospective"). Printed later (1994) on behalf of the Fred Stein estate by Stein's son, Peter Stein: "Printed and archival processed by a master printer under Peter Stein’s supervision and to his approval, and matched as closely as possible to his father’s vintage prints." (Fred Stein website). Size: image 10.5 x 14 in.; with matte 16 x 20 in. Number 38/450. Limitation and "Albert Einstein Princeton 1946" on the front of the original matte (beneath the photo); signed by Peter Stein and with stamp "Estate of Fred Stein" and "Authorised Estate print" on verso of matte.
