An original poster dating to 1977, 32" by 18 1/2" in present gray metal framing, advertising an exhibition in Phoenix at the Galleria of the downtown Arizona Bank building, of works by two sentinel photographers of the 20th century in the Southwest: Ansel Adams (1902-1984), and Frederick Sommer (1905-1999). Sommer, born in Italy, lived in Prescott, Arizona for much of his life. He is known primarily for his black and white landscape photography, which sells into five figures at New York auctions. Adams of course is more known outside the high-end photography community, his original photographs reaching well into six figures. The poster is graphically interesting, with its black, white, and red composition. It has been exposed to moisture at some point, which led to damp stain in the bottom portion, especially visible in the left and right margin areas, and some rumpling in the center. It should be possible to tightly mat to eliminate most of this. One could keep the typeface at bottom, or, mat that out as well, as per your personal choice. Thus matted, the condition issue is greatly minimized. A scarce poster and, again, striking graphics. Shipping price assumes rolling in a tube (glass is already cracked). Or, frame could be retained and the work shipped flat without the glass.
