Press Event: Oceans, Rivers, and Skies: Ansel Adams, Robert Adams, and Alfred Stieglitz
Three important and beautiful series of black-and-white landscape photographs will be showcased in, 'Oceans, Rivers, and Skies: Ansel Adams, Robert Adams, and Alfred Stieglitz,' on view from October 12, 2008 through March 15, 2009 (West Building Ground Floor Gallery 34). This focus exhibition features 21 works in chronological order: ten by Alfred Stieglitz (1864–1946), five by Ansel Adams (1902–1984), and six by Robert Adams (b. 1937). The three series have never before been exhibited together, and Stieglitz's series Music: A Sequence of Ten Cloud Photographs, was last seen in its entirety in 1923. The exhibition is organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
