©Lucien Clergue nu zebré New York 1997
One of the most famous Lucien Clergue pictures, “Nu Zébré”, taken in New York in 1997, was sold for $28,000 by Trigano, Lucien Clergue’s American gallery. It is a black and white silver print mounted on aluminum measuring 80 × 120 cm taken out of a series of 8. The photographer is ecstatic.
Furthermore, Lucien Clergue wanted us to know that “the Napoleon Hotel of Menton est entirely decorated with his pictures, Cocteau’s Orpheus Testament are in each room, while the Nudes and Landscapes are in the reception halls.”
