Printed by Berenice Abbott from Atget's negatives with a "Eugene Atget Photograph, Collection Berenice Abbott" stamp on verso, plus other handwriting. This image set a World Auction Record for Atget at $686,500 in a print by Atget himself, and this may be one of the earliest prints of the image made by Abbott. Prints of this image by Abbott are scarce and sought after. Provenance: from the artist about 1960 to photographer Maggie Smith, wife of W.Eugene Smith. See: Nesbit, Atget's Seven Albums, Fortifications de Paris, p.112, pl.91.Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer.
