Description

    Two Ansel Adams Typed Letters Signed "Ansel" on the verso of picture postcards of his works titled "Manly Beacon, Death Valley National Monument" and "Dunes, Oceano, California"; Salinas, California, November 10, 1977 and July 20, 1979. Both to photographer and personal friend Lou Stoumen, Los Angeles. The postcards show typically fine California landscapes taken by Adams. Content regarding his work and the business of photography. In part: "[Nov. 9. 1977]... My first Guggenheim application was turned down, too... [July 7, 1979]... Good luck with your exhibit. I fear you will find most galleries and Museums inclined to the 'conceptual' approach..." One card creased at one corner, otherwise very good to near fine condition with bold signatures.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
