Ansel Adams - Early Works
Ansel Adams (1902-1984), photographer, musician, naturalist, explorer, critic and teacher, was a giant in the field of American landscape photography. His work can be viewed as the end of an arc of American art concerned with capturing the “sublime” in the unspoiled Western landscape. This tradition includes the 19th century painters Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Cole, and Thomas Moran, and the 19th century photographers Carleton Watkins, Timothy O’Sullivan, and William Henry Jackson.
This is the first time that the Arkansas Arts Center has hosted an exhibition devoted to the photography of Ansel Adams. As we complete the 100th anniversary of the National Park System, it is appropriate to show works by this great photographer who is renowned for his imagery of Yosemite National Park, Sequoia National Park, the Sierra Nevadas, and other great natural sites of the West.
