11x8 signed photo taken in Yosemite National Park. Framed 18x14x1. Purchased at Alinder Gallery in Gualala California.
Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. I apologize for the delay in your appraisal and thank you for your patience. The item presented appears to be a silver gelatin photograph by American photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams (1902-1984) titled "Trees and Cliff," measuring 11 x 8 inches. The print appears to be signed to the back mat below the print. The image was originally taken circa 1954 and eventually published in a portfolio titled "Portfolio III," printed in 1960. If you were to remove the print from the frame, a red stamp may be present to the verso, identifying the edition and portfolio information.
The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of this work and other comparable signed silver gelatin prints by Adams, pulled from the same portfolio. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report and its authenticity. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
