'PENITENTE MORADA, COYOTE, N. M.'
mounted, signed in pencil on the mount, titled in pencil, and with an Anne Adams Helms collection stamp on the reverse, 1950, probably printed in the 1970s (Classic Images, pl. 59)
14¾ by 19½ in. (37.5 by 49.5 cm.)
This print is in generally excellent condition. Near the center-right edge of the image, there is a small crescent-shaped handling crease that appears to break the emulsion ever-so-slightly.
On the reverse of the mount is a collection stamp that reads: 'Photograph by Ansel Adams / Anne Adams Helms Collection.' Anne Adams Helms is the daughter of Ansel Adams.
A modern mat is affixed along the upper mount edge with clear tape.
