With a career spanning nearly seven decades, Ansel Adams is one of the most prolific American landscape photographers of all time. Moreover, his lifelong work in conservation is nothing short of extraordinary, with achievements including having shot for the Department of the Interior and receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, among many others. What’s more, Adams played a key role in helping to establish the photography department at the Museum of Modern Art.
Next month, Sotheby’s will be auctioning A Grand Vision: The David H. Arrington Collection of Ansel Adams Masterworks. The collection will include over 100 prints from throughout Ansel Adams’ career. Among the rarer and more notable works featured, there will be Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico; Grand Tetons and the Snake River, Grand Tetons National Park, Wyoming; Winter Sunrise, Sierra Nevada, from Lone Pine, California; and Aspens, Northern New Mexico. With prices expected to climb as high as $1 million, this is one auction you won’t want to miss.
