Print size is 11 X 14 inches. The photograph is very beautifully printed in the United States under Reed Massengill's direct supervision to absolutely the highest standards. Eminently suitable for framing. Encased in his studio's protective plastic sheet. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in a Limited Edition print, Reed Massengill's "Jon In Lon's Chair". The photographer, who is also a brilliant writer/historian on photography, has received well-deserved accolades for his male nudes: "Sensational imagery, depicting every essence of male-ness. His extroverted models present themselves cheeky and playful, teasing us pleasurably with their beauty" (Lon Hanagan). That comment perfectly captures this casually yet stunningly beautiful photograph. A "must-have" original, not just memorabilia, item for Reed Massengill and male erotic art photography collectors. This is one of the 11 X 14 inch Limited Edition silver-gelatin prints, indicated as such, and it is very prominently and beautifully titled, numbered, and signed in pencil on verso by the photographer: "Jon In Lon's Chair 1/15 Reed Massengill". It is encased in his studio's protective plastic sheet and is eminently suitable for framing. This print is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. For a print this size, Massengill prints command hundreds of dollars from his New York gallery. A rare signed print thus. 1 original 11 X 14 inch silver-gelatin print. One of the most brilliant living American photographers of the male nude. A flawless collectible copy.
