  • Catalogue Essay

    This photograph was part of The Museum of Modern Art’s American Photographs at $10 program initiated in 1941. Photographs by nine photographers were exhibited and made available to the public, each in an edition of 10 at a cost of $10. This laudable idea was ahead of its time and, despite the high caliber of the work—by photographers such as Walker Evans, Edward Weston, Charles Sheeler, and László Moholy-Nagy, among others—the venture was less than successful, with few photographs sold.
