    Description

    Jesse Banfield (1877-1946). Original Portrait of his niece, Muriel. Measures approximately 6.5" x 4.5". No frame or mount. Very minor tearing at edges. Humorous pen inscription on verso. Very good. Banfield was a member of the Oakland salon pictorial movement. He exhibited in various salons between 1910 and 1917, including the Seventh American Photographic Salon at the John Herron Art Institute; the Ninth American Photographic Salon at the Art Institute of Chicago; and the International Exhibition of the London Salon of Photography, Galleries of the Royal Society. His work was also reproduced in "Architecture & Landscape Gardening of the Exposition," Paul Elder and Co., San Francisco, 1915. He frequently used a soft focus "verito lens" (the same kind used by Ansel Adams until 1929). This photograph is from a collection of originals believed to have been printed by the photographer himself for inclusion in a custom album he presented to his niece, Muriel. The gift inscription from the album reads, "To my niece Muriel / from / Jess."
