      Est: $300 - $500

      JESSIE TARBOX BEALS, Art Institiute of Chicago. Glorious view of the lion., 1940s c, 9.875x7.875" Gelatin silver print, Printed 1940s c, Photographer's address stamp on print verso: Jessie Tarbox Beals / 216 East Ontario St. / Chicago Ill.; miscellaneous gallery numbers in pencil and ink. Tarbox Beals, the first female photojournalist in America, here emphasizes the grandeur of the lions at the entrance to the Art Institute of Chicago. Jessie Tarbox Beals (1870-1942) lived in Canada until she was 17, when she moved to Williamsburg, Massachusetts to work as a teacher. In 1888 she won her first camera in a contest, and a few years later Beals supplemented her income by taking photographs. In 1897 she married Alfred Beals, with whom she worked as an itinerant photographer in New England. In 1902, Beals was hired as one of the first woman staff photographers for the Buffalo Courier of New York.  Two years later she was the first woman to gain press credentials to the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis, Missouri. The following year the Beals moved to New York where they opened a photography studio. In 1917, after divorcing her husband, she opened Village Art Gallery in Greenwich Village and began to photograph in the streets, with a particular focus on the underclass of New York City and its children. In 1928 she moved briefly to California to photograph in Hollywood, but eventually moved back to Greenwich Village where she lived until her death. Her work was included in major exhibitions in Toronto in 1921, and in Buffalo in 1922, and since her death has been included in several New York exhibitions. Beals also wrote poetry and published a book of poems, entitled "Songs of a Wanderer." CREDIT: Howard Greenberg Gallery http://www.howardgreenberg.com/artists/jessie-tarbox-beals

      Untitled (Little Girl) by Jessie Tarbox BealsA charming untitled silver gelatin portrait of a young girl enjoying a tea party with her dolls, 1910, with penciled notation and Jessie Tarbox Beals / Hotel Allerton / Chicago, ILL. stamp on verso; 8 x 10 in. Jessie Tarbox Beals (1870-1942) initially worked as a teacher in Massachusetts, but purchased her first camera in 1888 and began taking and developing pictures as a hobby. In 1897, she married Alfred Tennyson Beals, and by 1900, she left teaching and pursued photography as a full time career with her husband as her assistant. Beals started as a traveling photographer, but she was eventually hired by the Buffalo Inquirer as a staff photographer in 1902. She is considered one of the first women to hold this particular position on a U.S. paper. By 1904, Beals moved to St. Louis to take pictures of the World's Fair, and she eventually became the only official female photographer for the exhibition. Following this experience, Beals moved to New York and opened her own studio. Throughout the remainder of her career, she took a variety of photographs, including portraits of famous figures such as President Theodore Roosevelt.
