Near fine silver gelatin photograph of ''Behind the Gare Saint-Lazare'' taken and developed by Henri Cartier-Bresson, signed by the photographer and with his studio's embossed stamp to lower left. Considered the quintessential example of Cartier-Bresson's ability to capture the ''decisive moment'', this photograph has been chosen as one of Time magazine's 100 most influential photos, where it's described: ''Speed and instinct were at the heart of Henri Cartier-Bresson's brilliance as a photographer. And never did he combine the two better than on the day in 1932 when he pointed his Leica camera through a fence behind Paris' Saint-Lazare train station. The resulting image is a masterpiece of form and light. As a man leaps across the water, evoking the dancers in a poster on the wall behind him, the ripples in the puddle around the ladder mimic the curved metal pieces nearby. Cartier-Bresson, shooting with a nimble 35-millimeter camera and no flash, saw these components all come together for a brief moment and clicked his shutter. Timing is everything, and no other photographer's was better.'' Photograph measures 13'' x 18''. In near fine condition.
