BLACK WOMAN OUTDOORS TINTYPE $150. USD
I try to stay away from speculative comments, but this woman looks like she's been through a lot. It's curious the way her hand is interacting with the stump (found sculpture?). Deep!
Approximately 3 1/4 x 2 3/8 inches.
No bends. Light surface wear.
Her face is powerful. The foreground feels existential, and the background seems surrealistic. I know these are lofty concepts to put on a common tintype, but I’d argue this is no ordinary image. Somewhat dark.
