  • Catalogue Essay

    This photograph was given by Cole Weston to Arthur Connell, a founder and the first treasurer of Friends of Photography, the non-profit organization started by Ansel Adams, Brett Weston, and other West Coast photographers. On the reverse of the mount, Connell has written: "This print was given to me by Cole Weston in January 1968 through a request from Brett Weston. As administrator of the estate off his father, Edward Weston, all of Edward's negatives and what remains of his original prints not otherwise owned is part of his estate which forms his legacy to his sons. This print may have been made by Edward as he made many of his finest works in duplicate for the boys. It also could have been made under his supervision by either Brett or Cole."



Gelatin silver print, probably printed in the 1950s or 1960s.
3 1/2 x 4 1/2 in. (8.9 x 11.4 cm)
