A group of twelve gelatin silver prints by Edward Weston (1886-1958 Carmel, CA)

  • Provenance: The Hastings Family Collection, La Canada, CA
  • Notes: These Hastings Family portraits date from 1911 and 1912 when Weston worked out of his Tropico studio in the present-day Glendale, CA area. Weston executed the photographs in the soft-focus, pictorial style that characterized his early period. In the formal studio portraits, Weston bathes the sitters in dramatic and ethereal light while the small boy is presented in two, more playful images, one in a full length shot facing the camera and one seated and smiling. Also included is a tender 1916 double portrait of a mother and three-month-old baby Margaret
  • Condition: Each: Generally good condition. The upper edges tipped to the back folio mats. All retaining the original folios, some with the artist's signature and date. Some with minor scattered nibbles to the edges. Portrait of a young woman: extensive staining throughout the background. Loose in the folio. Portrait of a mother and baby Margaret: a few scattered losses and scratches to the let and right of the mother and throughout. The photograph mounted to backing paper but lacking folio. Portrait of Charles Clifton Chase: Tack holes in the upper center. The lower right corner missing. The image out of focus. Loose in a folio.
