This is an original vintage black and white photo by Werner Manz, a German photographer, famous for architectural pictures. This portrait photograph is the face of a large sculpture called Star of the Sea, from the Basilica of our Lady in Maastricht Holland. Werner Manz 1901- 1983, used Gelatin Silver Print, this could be that type.
There is a stamp on the back, “Foto + Copyright W. Mantz Karl Mergenbaum Maastricht Konig Clovisstraat 1.”
It is in good condition, measures 9 x 7 inches. This is an estate piece, I have taken it out of the frame. It is signed on the lower right, very hard to see. Please Google his name to find out his full story
