Label Text:
This photograph was recently a subject of research and conservation conducted by Allison Pappas, the Lenett Fellow in the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art. Pappas examined the physical evidence, including deliberate markings and unintentional damages, on the front and back of this photograph to trace its history from its original intended function as a working print for publication to its presentation in the Mead Art Museum.

Capa photographed for Life magazine, the self-proclaimed first picture magazine in the United States. The magazine staff printed Allied Entry into Paris for consideration but chose not to include it in the issue illustrating the Liberation of Paris.
