Lot Details
HUGHES, TED (1930-1998)
PORTRAIT BY NOEL CHANAN (b. 1939), vintage photograph, silver print, three-quarter length in profile facing left, seated in his great friend Leonard Baskin's sculpture studio at Lurley Manor, Tiverton, Devon, c. 1983 print of 1979 negative, framed and glazed, size of image 14 x 10 inches (36 x 25 cm), overall size 21 x 16 inches (53.5 x 40.5 cm), Tiverton, 1979 / c. 1983

This remarkable image of Ted Hughes was used for the dust-jacket of his Collected Poems, 2003. Noel Chanan was a particular friend of Leonard Baskin since the 1970s, frequently photographing his work and family, and met and got to know Hughes through him. Using images taken on the same occasion in 1979 as the present portrait, he has produced a marvellous DVD of Hughes and Baskin in conversation entitled The Artist and the Poet. Chanan is a documentary film-maker and photographer, and author of William, Earl of Craven & the Art of Photography, 2006.

PROVENANCE: Noel Chanan.
