This afternoon's Oprah show had a series of stories about lucky finds. One woman had found a mounted b&w picture of plant blooms in an antique store and paid 25 cents for it. The label on the back identified the photographer as Imogen Cunningham. She took it to a/the Weston Gallery where it sold for $60,000, with $50,000 going to the lucky lady. It was "Two Callas" (ca. 1925), one of five known original prints; there's a beautiful reproduction in Richard Lorenz' Imogen Cunningham "Flora" volume, plate 10. Sorry if I missed a detail or two here, but I wanted to share since it was so gratifying to see one of the masters of our art receiving the national recognition she and her work so richly deserve. Not sure about the format, but Lorenz' timeline seems to have Cunningham using a 4x5 at this time, with the 2 1/4 by 2 1/4 not coming along until 1938.
