More About this Item


Ansel Adams
Mural by Ray Boynton

7 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches ( 197.2 x 146.3 mm )

Parmelian print, with the photographer's signature and title in pencil in the margin.
Raymond Sceptre Boynton (1883-1951) was a painter and muralist in California for most of his life. Born in Iowa, studied art in Chicago in 1903, then lived in Spokane, Wa. before settling in San Francisco in 1915. In 1919 he took a teaching position at CSFA and at UC Berkeley from 1923. He fulfilled mural commissions locally, and in 1934 he was one of 26 artists selected by the federal government to paint murals in Coit Tower. We do not know the location of this mural that Adams photographed.

In very good condition aside from a vertical crease in the left margin that extends the length of the sheet.
