Private Collection, California
Sotheby's New York, 2 November 1987, Sale 5627, Lot 31
Acquired by the present owner from the above
'Rose and Driftwood' is among the earliest Adams images to be reproduced in book form: in Adams's own Making a Photograph: An Introduction to Photography (London and New York, 1935), where it is used to exemplify the quality of detail in photography; and in Bryan Holmes's Poet's Camera (New York and London, 1946), an anthology of lyrical images by 20th-century photographers.
Prints of this image, both early and late, are scarce. The present photograph is one of only six examples, in various states, that have been offered at auction in the past two decades.
