Cavallo Point is delighted to present images by Ansel Adams, the legendary photographer and environmentalist. From 1948 to 1976, Adams produced seven portfolios, each a limited edition of signed photographic prints. Cavallo Point is proud to feature Adams' "Portfolio Two | The National Parks & Monuments". The exhibit is held in conjunction with sister property Post Ranch Inn and The G2 Gallery. Portfolio Two will begin at Cavallo Point while another of Adams' collections, Portfolio Four, will display at Post Ranch Inn, before switching locations in the fall.
Portfolio Two is available for purchase as a complete collection for $125,000. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and Turning Green. The portfolio on exhibit – set number 57 of 100 – includes 15 silver gelatin prints mounted on board, printed in 1950, and signed in ink.
About Portfolio Two | The National Parks & Monuments
Portfolio Two focuses on a subject for which Ansel Adams is particularly renowned, America's national parks and monuments. Featuring some of his most iconic photographs, the images reflect Adams' passion for maintaining those areas as protected land for generations to come. Such famous images as "Zabriskie Point, Death Valley National Monument, California, 1942" and "Moth and Stump, Interglacial Forest, Glacier Bay National Monument, Alaska, 1949" helped spur on the conservation movement in the United States.
