Vintage Photoengravings

This No Reserve photoengraving sale boasts some of the most significant names in photography, as well as their distinguished models. Photoengraving is a photomechanical process that evolved from a marriage between traditional relief printmaking, etching, and photography. In this process the continuous tones of a photograph or image were translated into dots through a series of actions. The inadequacies of the human eye allow us to optically blend these dots back into their continuous tone giving the illusion of tonal variation. Be mesmerized by a tasteful fashion portrait, or enjoy a unique journalistic shot by Edouard Boubat. Whether you seek a familiar face or a dramatic composition, these engravings are sure to transfix you with their unique views of decades past.
