Yosemite Valley Winter by Ansel Adams- a Yosemite Special Edition Photograph

Ansel Adams made this image around 1959 with an 8" x 10" view camera. The image was once used in a commercial job, as he recalls in " Ansel Adams: An Autobiography:'

"In 1969, for one of my last commercial jobs, I selected a photograph, Yosemite Valley, Winter'...for reproduction on a Hills Brothers coffee can. The idea was to produce something of lasting attractiveness after the original contents of the can had been consumed..Potentially corny: actually reasonable.' 

After much fun was poked at him by his peers he decided to pull the printing rites for the can. Not many remain in this pristine condition.

The piece is in mint condition and is marked on the spine with artist name and title.
