For your consideration, a spectacularly large and historic vintage display photograph by Gabriel Moulin of the 1939-1940 Golden Gate International Exposition held at Treasure Island, San Francisco measuring (framed) 59” x 47”. It is a night scene of the Arch of Triumph toward Court of Flowers and was, most probably, a Exposition display photograph of Treasure Island’s “The Magic City”. The black and white photograph features original hand tinting and vintage in-painting This historic image is in good vintage condition with some emulsion loss and areas where in-painting or tinting has been applied over damaged surfaces of the work (see detail photographs). The photograph is mounted on what appears to be masonite and is in it’s original frame. Gabriel Moulin (1872-1945) was born in San Jose in 1872 of German and French parents. When he was twelve, the family moved to San Francisco. He left school to become a photographer, eventually finishing school at night. He went to work as an assistant with I.W. Taber, the City’s leading photographer. In 1909, he founded Gabriel Moulin Studios in San Francisco. During the Panama-Pacific Exposition in 1915, Moulin was the official photographer for the Palace of the Fine Art. His work can be found in the collections of The Bancroft Library of the University of California, Berkeley, the Oakland Museum of California, and the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.
