[Ernest Hemingway In The Front Row At A Bullfight]

c1959. Vintage silver gelatin photograph, photographer’s stamp verso, 17.2 x 23cm. Creases, slight crinkles, cracking, tape verso.

Photographer’s stamp reads “Cuevas. Marques de Leganes, 7. Telef. 32 19 69 – Madrid.” There is a reference to the photographer Cuevas in Valerie Hemingway’s book Running with the Bulls: My Years with the Hemingways (2004). His assistant at the time, Valerie Hemingway (future daughter-in-law) recalled an incident in Pamplona where she and Hemingway were taking a stroll and he lost his temper after his “reverie” was interrupted by an unexpected flash photograph taken by an apologetic Cuevas, “a short, round-faced Basque photographer.”
