ANSEL ADAMS (1902 - 184) is one of the greatest landscape photographers of all time. He spent virtually all his life documenting American wildlife and forests. His images are known workldwide and regularly rise in price. Prices vary substantially depending on signature: indeed, Adams, usually reproduced his photos himself, but only signed a few copies: many are either not signed or just initialled.

We offer here one of his best known images, hand-signed by Adams and in exceptional condition.
