This photograph was created in 1887 at The University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia and is from Muybridge’s pioneering work on stop-motion photography/cinematography entitled Animal Locomotion. It is guaranteed to be from the original 1887 Animal Locomotion publication, and is not a re-print. He created 781 different plates for the original publication, and this is plate No. The sheet size measures 19″ x 23.625″, and the image size measures approximately 10.25″ x 10.75″. Considering that this photograph is over 125 years old, it is in very good condition. Overall, the sheet is still very bright, and void of scuffs or major stains. The back of the sheet has light staining, and a handwritten inventory number (bottom right corner as shown). The photograph comes from the corporate art collection of Smith Kline and French, and was previously framed/matted. Please see my other auctions for more examples of these Muybridge collotypes. However, all customers can request that the print can be safely and loosely rolled in a 5 diam tube. Please contact me to discuss.
