16 April 2019 marks the 130th anniversary of Charlie Chaplin’s birth, and I am delighted to announce details of our celebration of classic Charlie Chaplin images—a celebration that will start on 16 January 2019 and continue throughout the year.
Working with the owners of Charlie Chaplin’s archives, we are launching a collection of authorised limited edition Charlie Chaplin photographs, made to the highest archival standards.
Collectors of fine art photography will be able to purchase authorised museum quality limited edition Charlie Chaplin photographs, produced by hand in the darkroom by a master printer on traditional heavyweight silver gelatin paper in a range of sizes.
Each month we will be releasing a carefully curated collection of images from a single Charlie Chaplin film. Over the course of 2019, collectors will be able to build up, on a month by month basis, a collection of classic photographs from key First National and United Artists films, including City Lights (1931), Modern Times (1936), The Gold Rush (1925), A Dog’s Life (1918), The Kid (1921), Shoulder Arms (1918), and more.
We launch the first set of photographs on 16 January 2019 at 5pm UK time, right here at this page on our website, and the launch collection will focus on one of Charlie Chaplin’s best-loved films, The Kid (1921). At the same time on 16 February 2019, we will launch a collection online from a second film and we will continue to do so throughout 2019. Releases will always be posted at 5pm UK time on the 16th of each month.
