By descent to the present owner
The photograph offered here is from the first year of an intensive series of more than 40 pepper studies Edward Weston made in 1929 and 1930. Unlike the later pepper studies of 1930, in which the abstracted vegetable consumes nearly the entire 8x10-inch negative, the early studies have a low, defined horizon line. The peppers were placed in bowls or, as in Pepper No. 14, against a burlap background, and become sculptural in their presentation.
