About This Image

A small gem of a contact print with Sudek's signature, in pencil, on recto. Provenance: artist; collection of Jan AmpalĂ­k, Sudek's friend.

One of the many images made in the garden of the architect Otto Rothmayer, often called 'The Magic Garden'. Sudek met Rothmayer while photographing at the Prague Castle. The beauty of Rothmayer's garden was well known, so Sudek accepted Rothmayer's request to come and photograph the chairs in his garden. The two remained close friends until Rothmayer's death.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
