Lot of 9 Silver gelatin prints -shot on May 24, 1968 - signed in ink on back - blindstamp print from 1998 Cuba Habana, unique Edition

Size 16x20 inch = 40cm x 50 cm from the original negative by the author Signed in ink and blindstamp

My father inspired by Bottecelli paintings found in my mother’s beauty one of his muse. These prints belong to a series of diapositivas that were hidden. The rocks in La Isla de Cerdeña, Italy was a revelation of the venus naked in a shell by Bottecelli in the birth of venus . Because the Revolution had closed his Korda Studios and confiscated all his work so far under the acusation of being a porn photographer, he kept these photographs in secret. He kept his passion for the pure beauty in a young woman.
Author: Alberto Korda, my father, best known for his photo “Guerrillero Heróico” the photo that made a man’s life a legend.
My father was one of the few cuban photojournalists responsible for capturing the world’s attention with the Cuban Revolution Propaganda.
Personal Collection, Dante Korda.
My father preserved this photo as an allegory of his eternal love for woman beauty.
Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Dante Korda
