Description of piece:
"Fallen Tree", a stunning Ansel Adams limited edition of 500 from his Epic 1938 work “Sierra Nevada: The John Muir Trail”. The work was used as a sophisticated lobbying tool while Congress was voting on the establishment of Kings Canyon Grand National Park. Ansel Adams worked on it for nearly a year. President Franklin D. Roosevelt kept a copy for the White House – maybe this one as it ended up in the War Memorial Library of the Department of the Interior in 1939. The photograph here offered is #190/500 and was printed in 1938 in the finest half-tone process of the time. This piece is not signed by the artist but the Certificate of Authenticity will verify Ansel Adams and the edition.

Artist bio:
Ansel Easton Adams (February 20, 1902 – April 22, 1984) was an American photographer and environmentalist. His black and white landscape photographs of the American West, especially Yosemite National Park, have been widely reproduced on calendars, posters, books, and the internet. Adams and Fred Archer developed the Zone System as a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photographs. He primarily used large-format cameras because the large film used with these cameras (primarily 5x4 and 8x10) contributed to sharpness in his prints.
