"Triangles Plus One, 1928"


Imogen Cunningham (1883-1968) is considered the greatest female photographer in the history of the art.  Getting her start by printing for Edward Curtis, she was instrumental in founding the famous west coast "f / 22" group with Edward Weston and a young Ansel Adams.  Her figure studies from the 20s of which this print is a famous example, are among the finest ever created.

The prints of Imogen Cunningham exist in three categories: 1) those printed by Cunningham, 2) those printed during her lifetime by a technician under her supervision, and, 3) those printed after her death by her instructions by the Cunningham Trust.  Obviously these categories also govern the value of a print.  This print is a posthumous "Trust" print, possessing, in the mount, both the Imogen Cunningham Trust embossing as well as her famous embossed chop.  The print is 6 x 7 1/4 inches mounted to 14 x 14 inches. It is archivally framed to 14 x 14 inches. The print is in perfect condition.
