A black and white photograph of snow in woods, circa 1950's or 1960's, unsigned, 12 3/4" by 18 1/2" (17 1/2" by 23 1/2" in frame), recently acquired from the Beverly Hills estate of Lydia and Charlton Heston; the photo was hanging in a hallway lined with many, many photographic works. Lydia was an avid and accomplished photographer herself, and many of the pieces for sale at this event were her own works. Among the photographs sold were signed examples by Edward Curtis, Ansel Adams, Eugene Atget, and "the Chinese Ansel Adams", Chinsan Long. This work could be by a recognized photographer but at this point without a signature I am unable to attribute it to any particular artist. It is laid on a black board (those margins on three sides only). There are small creases in a few places likely dating to when it was laid on the black board, but they are only visible to those ardently looking for them. At left there seems to be an area of brownish discoloration, due to old damp conditions (I brushed off some light mildew on reverse). There are penciled size measurements in the bottom of the black board. The silvery frame has wear, and mat is old and soiled. I would suggest shipping just the photograph itself.
