    Redes Commemorative Portfolio
    32 Silver gelatin, platinum, and hand coated silver prints, 1981
    20 x 15 x 2-1/2 inches (50.8 x 38.1 x 6.4 cm)

    From the estate of Gunter von Fritsch.

    Fifty Year Commemorative Portfolio of Paul Strand's 1931 film Redes by Ned Scott. Contains two folios in original wood veneer slipcase of 20 platinum prints by Paul Strand and 12 silver prints by Ned Scott, printed by Ned Scott with a commemorative text folio by several contributors, including Manuel Alvarez Bravo. All in Spanish, signed and inscribed to Gunter von Fritsch, the film editor. Also included are 43 vintage 5 x 7 Ned Scott film stills taken on location; 19 4 x 3 vintage 'snaps' of the film set; 35 35mm contact proof strips; and one film transparency of a young boy holding a set clapper. Offered for the first time at auction.

    This lot is accompanied by 44 pages of provenance and research documentation about Gunter von Fritsch's contribution to the film.

    The "20 platinum prints by Paul Strand" were most likely made by Ned Scott and not Paul Strand. Further, the prints were not printed by Ned Scott, as stated above.
