Vintage 1960s Art Print. Black and White photograph of boys looking across the Berlin Wall, with guards and large industrial buildings. Post war Germany in print.

This is a fascinating print of a photograph, taken from a philosophical book on the culture of man and his soul. Printed in 1964, on lovely sturdy matte paper, it has a graphic industrial look that draws you in and suits the tone of the subject matter.

A group of young men stand on and near a rickety platform in the winter snow, peering across the Berlin wall(s), guarded by four men in uniform. In the distance we see large stone buildings, factories and offices, a wide street with a car here and there, streetlights, and the odd pedestrian. In the foreground, bare branches of trees partly obscure our view of the cluster of boys.

This is a slightly grainy print, contemplative and historical. It has a strange voyeuristic feel to it, and gets more interesting as you look at it. It will look equally good framed and matted in grey and black, or simply pinned to a wall.

The page measures 8" x 10.75" with the printed image 8" x 8.5" and a small page number (84) in the bottom left corner. The condition is good, no creases or tears or marking, but with some pale discoloration (foxing) at the very thin edge of the top and bottom (as seen in photo #2). This adds dimension and age, visually, but could also be covered in the framing process if you so choose.
