Vintage Original Hand Signed Ansel Adams Lake Tenaya & Cloud 1946, Nr:
Vintage Original & Hand-Signed Ansel Adams "Lake Tenaya" Photograph from 1946, Printed & Matted in the 1950's !!!
Print is in excellent shape except for edges which have some mild fraying, can be touched up or left that way. Signed in pen lower right by Ansel Adams. Image is 9.25" by 7.25" and mat board is 16.5" x 13.5."
Mat board has yellowed over the years and there is some staining/discoloration on the mat board (no staining/discoloration on the print; the mat board will be covered up when you frame it). There are two pin holes in the upper edges of the mat.
The last two photos show a framed version of the same image made from the original negative after Mr. Adams' death by one of his students, as a suggestion for how to frame the print. This framed print and mat are the same size as the one I have for sale, there was an overlay of black acid-free mat board and a black frame. If you look at the reproduction print, there is more contrast in the clouds and rock face compared with the original; Mr. Adams did a lot of dodging and burning to get things looking just right.
"Tenaya" was one of Mr. Adams' best images. It comes in the same box it was purchased in from Mr. & Ms. Adams' studio in Carmel in the 1950's.
