Item Details
Description
Edition 13 of 94 - Ansel Adams "Upper Yosemite Falls, Spring", [Negative 1946 - Print 1972] gelatin silver photograph, dry-mounted and signed by Adams in pencil lower right. Excellent condition. Provenance verso.American landscape photographer, was born in San Francisco, California. Always a lover of nature, his life was, in his own words, "colored and modulated by the great earth gesture" of the Yosemite Sierra; Adams spent substantial time there every year from 1916 until his death. His technical mastery was the stuff of legend. More than any creative photographer, before or since, Ansel Adams reveled in the theory and practice of the medium, even creating the famous and highly complex 'zone system' of controlling and relating exposure and development. Adams's images became the iconic symbols of wild America. Seen in a more traditional art history context, Adams was the last and defining figure in the romantic tradition of 19th century American landscape painting and photography.Overall size: 15 7/8 x 18 7/8 in.
