LOLIONDO LION CHARGE | 1964, Silver gelatin print, double signed by Peter Beard. Ex-collection of Robert Kirschenbaum.


£19,500.00 GBP

One of Peter Beard's most iconic and sought after shots; here unique with a double signature, sterling provenance and being such an early printing of the famous Loliondo Lion Charge.

Double signed by Beard: firstly, signed, dated 'Nov 77', and annotated 'I.C.P.' by Beard in pencil to the back of the print; secondly, signed, titled, and dated by Beard in pencil to the mount.

This original Peter Beard is originally from the collection of Robert Kirschenbaum (1936-2023). It was presented as a gift from Beard, following the opening of Beard’s important show at the International Centre of Photography, in November 1977. It remained in Kirschenbaum's collection until recently.

Kirschenbaum is a highly revered figure in the global photo scene as he opened up the Japanese and Asian market to many of the leading photographers of his time, including Beard.
