Dovima with Elephants, 1955
Gelatin silver print mounted on board.
Signed and dedicated in ink on the mount.
Image 19.2 x 24.2 cm. (7 5/8 x 9 5/8 in.)
Mount 31 x 36 cm. (12 ¼ x 14 ¼ in.)
This rare vintage print was a gift from Richard Avedon to his assistant, Claude Bablin, with whom he worked when in Paris. Taken in 1955 at the Cirque d’Hiver’s photoshoot, we recognize Dovima wearing another dress by Christian Dior.
Avedon stated that the negative of this image ‘disappeared mysteriously.’
