Edward Steichen - Pastoral - Moonlight- 1907

Edward Steichen is one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. Born in Luxemburg in 1879, his parents immigrated gto the USA when he was three.

He virtually led several lifes: in the late 19th century, he worked with Alfred Stieglitz and contributed to establishing photography - then fairly new - as an art medium. In the early 1900s, he went to France and became the official photographer of sculptor Auguste Rodin; he then shot some of the world's most iconic photographs (Rodin's Balzac - Rodin & Le Penseur - The Thinker). He was back in France in 1917 as the US Army head of photography. Back in the States he shot what is considered the first fashion photograph of art history and went on to become one of the leading fashion photographers of his time.

From 1947 to 1962, he was the head of the photography dept at MOMA in N ew York. He died in 1973, aged 93.

This one of his most beautiful scenes, in perfect condition, with rich tones and bright highlights .
