    Description

    Jesse Banfield (1877-1946). Original Signed Hand-Toned Silver Gelatin Portrait. 7.5" x 8.75". Tipped-on to a larger backing sheet. Signed in graphite on the lower right corner. Some modest toning, else fine. 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."

    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.
