The well-known portrait of Freud taken by the Austro-Hungarian photographer László Willinger: a very attractive print in excellent condition.

The present portrait was created in 1935.

Provenance: collection of the granddaughter of the Austro-American psychoanalyst René Spitz; acquired from a Belgian private collection.

Backing cardboard a little stained in two places and traces of old mounting on verso, otherwise clean and crisp.
