Moonrise for sale
Swann Auction Galleries in NY will be offering a vintage print of Adam's Moonrise at auction this week. It is expected to sell for a mere $350000 - 450000!
The print is one of Adam's earlier versions of this image. Instead of the inky black sky, there is a subtle range of grays, and a whole lot more detail in the foreground.
The image can be seen on pages 8/9 of the auction catalog.
Incidentally, the catalog indicates that the print is mounted on Crescent board. So much for the notion that dry-mounted prints won't sell.
