Ivan Dalla Tana’s Portrait of Basquiat with Darkroom Manipulation and Hand Alterations, Inscription to Edit DeAk on Back, 1991
Size: 10 x 8 inches
Ivan Dalla Tana (1950-2011) was born in Italy and moved to New York, where during the 1980s, he photographed Klaus Oldenburg, Jean Michel Basquiat, Malcom Morley, Keith Haring and many others. He is best known for his unique printing style, inspired by a golden reject found in his trashcan. Affected by that vision, he created a chemical formula for printing that has a special golden effect.
