This is the familiar classic black and white poster, titled "Aspens, Northern New Mexico, 1958", 37" by 25 1/2" in typically seen black metal strip frame, 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). Adams and other photographers in the Rockies found aspen trees to be excellent subjects, with their white bark. 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 is heavily rippled, due to having been in a dark, dampish home environment; there are NO water stains---just the heavy ripples on the highly glossy paper. Despite the flawed condition, this poster being a hand signed example remains desirable. Perfect examples are commonplace but autographed hand signed ones are certainly not. I can ship with the glass but cannot guarantee that the large and heavy sheet will survive the shipping process.
