    Signed and Dated Albert Einstein Photograph Taken by Noted Fashion Photographer Herman Landshoff S.P. "A. Einstein. 1946", a 5" x 7" black and white image signed in the lower white margin with a sentiment in German. The image has been identified by the Albert Einstein Archives as being taken by Herman Landshoff in 1945 during a session held at Einstein's home at 112 Mercer Street in Princeton, New Jersey. Although known primarily for his fashion photography, Landshoff's impressive portfolio includes memorable portraits of powerful intellectual and creative icons from his time, including Robert Oppenheimer, Alfred Stieglitz, and Ansel Adams. Although Landshoff's aesthetic relied on the use of motion in his shots, he has taken a very different approach in this instance. Einstein is posed and captured in a moment of reflection, all movement relies solely on the pattern of texture and light across the image. The image has a small areas of silvering at top, and few light creases primarily in the margins; however it remains striking and very displayable.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
