Alice Austen, renowned early 20th Century American Lesbian photographer. Framed print of The Darned Club on the cover of a 1976 DYKE, A Quarterly, the first periodical anywhere to recognize Alice as a Lesbian.

DYKE, A Quarterly cover designed by Liza Cowan in 1976.

*** The art is printed using an Epson large-format impact printer with archival inks on Epson Premium Lustre or Enhanced Matte paper. Frame mouldings are premium wood, the acrylic is cut using the newest technology, and every single piece is assembled and inspected here in the U.S.

*** I offer two frame options and three size options. Size = the finished framed piece.

*** Check the photos to see what the frames look like. The frames are not made with glass, but with fine acrylic, making them lighter, easier to hang, less likely to break, and gorgeous!

*** These framed prints are made to order, and may take up to three weeks to deliver, depending on the season and what holidays are coming up.

*** FREE SHIPPING

*** Sizes are not exact to- the -decimal because the frames are slightly different widths and it's too complicated to list each size separately. The are within the half inch. If absolutely to - the - decimal sizing is needed, send me a convo, and I will happily get you that information.



"Alice Austen (1866 - 1952). Austen was one of America's earliest and most prolific female photographers, and over the course of her life she captured about 8,000 images. Though she is best known for her documentary work, Austen was an artist with a strong aesthetic sensibility. Furthermore, she was a landscape designer, a master tennis player, and the first woman on Staten Island to own a car. She never married, and instead spent fifty years with Gertrude Tate. A rebel who broke away from the ties of her Victorian environment, Alice Austen created her own independent life." Alice Austen House Museum

For more about Alice Austen visit www.aliceausten.org. You can visit her home on Staten Island, which is now a historically landmarked museum.

In 1976, DYKE, A Quarterly (the magazine I co-published and co-edited) was the first publication anywhere in the world to recognize Alice as a Lesbian, in a feature article about her photographs and her life with her partner, Gertrude Tate.

This magazine cover has been featured at The Museum Of The City Of New York, in their exhibition Gay Gotham. A framed enlarged print - the same print I offer here - now hangs at The Alice Austen House Museum in Staten Island.
