An Original Catherine Weed Barnes photogravure, 8” x 10”, 1890, sepie tone. "A Study in Japanese" was published in the elegant art periodical Sun and Shade, a production of the New York Photo-Gravure Company. Catharine Weed Barnes Ward was an amateur photographer in New York. In May 1890, she joined the staff of the American Amateur Photographer, as the writer of a column called 'Women's Work,' perhaps the first woman to become a photography columnist and associate editor of a photographic journal. It is ID’d below the image, “Miss Catherine Weed Barnes, Photog”. A very clean image, verso has damp stain in top left hand corner. There is rippling in the middle of verso from water damage.This image is lacking a title at the bottom of the mount as seen in some examples, original credit lines as shown. The ONE auction record we found was for over $600 some 20+ years ago!
