ANSEL ADAMS Taos Pueblo Vintage 1929
Item Details
Description
ANSEL ADAMS. North House, Kiva Poles and Thunder Clouds Taos Pueblo, New Mexico, 1929. 6.8x8.2"signed gelatin silver print. ASG# AA/2434. Signed and dated 1929 below print right. This print is on cream-colored 14x11.5" paper that was used in the production of Adams's Taos Pueblo book (1930) with Mary Austin. Verso signed and noted in Adams's hand. Confirmed 12-24-74 Ansel Adams.

This elegant vintage print shows Adams's interest in the clouds of the southwest with a pictorial soft interpretation. The shapes of the clouds mimic the tree while the shadows on the tree and Kiva stand in contrast to the gray and white tones of the clouds.

Adams, Ansel (b. San Francisco, CA., USA, Feb. 20, 1902; - d. Monterey CA., April 22, 1984). Ansel Adams is the leading figure in photography in the twentieth century and the creator of the most famous art photograph in the history of photography, Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico, 1941 as well as hundreds of dramatic landscape images.

His attraction to the beauty of the natural world and art was both instinctive and part and parcel of his childhood. Adams joined the Sierra Club in 1920. He found his true community among its members. Through the Sierra Club he grew interested in mountaineering and conservation, serving as a director from 1934-1971.

In the 1920s he practiced the style of Pictorialism, but by the time he helped found Group f/64 in 1932, he was dedicated to promoting the straight, unmanipulated photograph as an art form. He met Alfred Stieglitz in New York in 1933 and was given a one-man show in 1936 at An American Place.

Adams subsequently helped establish the department of photography at New York City's Museum of Modem Art and was instrumental in the formation of the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson (1975).
