    More Information:

    Josef Sudek (March 17, 1896-September 15 1976) was a noted Czech photographer best remembered for his haunting night views of Prague and his modernist work, including remarkable still-life images. His work is the more remarkable in that his right arm had been amputated as a result of a WW I war injury. Signed work by Sudek is rare. In particular, this portfolio was signed within a month of his death.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
