Lot description
Vintage print, paper size is 6.5 x 6 inches (16.5 x 15.2 cm).

Edward Weston is among America's most revered photographers. His long career, which began in Los Angeles, spanned nearly four decades that witnessed the start and finish of two world wars and the Great Depression, the rise of photography as the dominant medium for commercial advertising, and the emergence of the United States as a major cultural center. Amid these developments, Weston forged a path that was both conservative and progressive. He was a proponent of tripod-mounted cameras and large-format negatives, rigorously considered compositions, and impeccably wrought contact prints in the service of Modernism. [Getty]
