Rare Arno Minkkinen 8x10 Photograph Self Portrait With Pirje Finland Nude 1992
This listing is for a rare original Arno Minkkinen Silver Gelatin Photograph. The photo paper measures 8"x10" inches. It is hand marked in pencil on the back near the bottom edge, and reads "Self-portrait with Pirje, Asikkala, Finland, 1992". The photo came from an estate with several other Minkkinen pieces, including one signed piece, and we believe the writing is by Arno himself. The self-portrait shows Arno's hand under Pirje's chin. The print quality is exceptional. It is in very good condition with some creasing in the white border areas of the lower left corner and along the left edge that will be covered up when matted and framed. There is one small dark spot in the upper area of the print itself, mostly visible at certain angles, that may clean off with the right technique. Please see the detailed photos below and contact us with any questions before bidding. We have a very reasonable opening bid, and no reserve price, so don't miss your chance to add this rare piece to your collection!
