This is the familiar classic black and white poster, titled "Yosemite and the Range of Light", copyrighted 1981 by the Trustees of the Ansel Adams Publishing Rights trust, HAND SIGNED in marker below the text, by the famous American photographer ANSEL ADAMS (1902-1984). The image is the well-known "Clearing Winter Storm, Yosemite Valley" (1944), one of Adams' more famous works produced over many years as a photographer in the Sierra Nevada mountain range and Yosemite. Adams of course is one of the most important photographers of the 20th century, and most certainly among the top talents in the photography of nature and landscape. If you are a fan of his work, and many are, (countless thousands of unsigned posters of his images are sold every year), then you should appreciate the opportunity to own an object that he once touched, though briefly. This print has acquired a number of condition flaws due to careless handling; there are some four horizontal folds at upper left near the word "ANSEL"; and at lower left corner there is a disturbed area likely the result of some moisture exposure, there are a few brownish foxing marks in the field, and various other assorted flaws. Viewed outside the frame, one can see that the extreme 3/4" inches on each side has been folded under so that this can be wrapped around a thin board put to use as backing of sorts, on which another (unsigned) Ansel Adams poster has been laid (bonus item). Despite the flaws, this poster being a hand signed example remains desirable. Perfect examples are commonplace but hand signed ones are certainly not. **SEE HAND SIGNED BOOK BY ANSEL ADAMS ALSO IN MY SHOP.** SEE HUNDREDS OF PAINTINGS, DRAWINGS AND PRINTS IN MY SHOP.
