An unusually large signed photograph of Sigmund Freud makes its way to the auction block on Thursday, February 11th in the Signed Historical Photographs from the Jerome Shochet Collection sale. Freud stares directly into the camera without his signature dark, round glasses, as if he is psychoanalyzing you, the viewer. His large signature is scrawled across the bottom, as is the date, 1925, placing the photograph towards the end of his distinguished career.
Freud, Sigmund. Large Photograph Signed and Inscribed, "Sigm. Freud / 1925," bust portrait by Halberstadt, approx 12x9 inches. Estimate: $8,000 to 12,000.
