Photo Female Nude with Sword by student of Ansel Adams


I am offering for your consideration at Auction, an Artistic Photo of a Female Nude with a Sword, this photo was taken by Lawrence Champagne, while a student at the Art Center School of Los Angeles. Mr. Champagne's instructors, while at the Art Center School of Los Angeles, were: Ansel Adams, Minor White, Hoyningen Heune, Imogen Cunningham, Weston and others.

T are 3 photos of the same Nude Female in different poses which are being listed and sold separately. These 3 photos are unmounted and are 11" x 14", c1947-49. The photo you are viewing, with sword pointing straight down, is listed as Photo #1.

CONDITION: These are Original Vintage photos, you should expect to find, cracks, crinkles, wrinkles etc. The photos should help you decide their condition.

I am also listing 10 Female Nude photos.

I will be listing 3 photos of male nudes 4" x 5", which will be listed in the "MATURE AUDIENCE" CATEGORY,

UNDER "EVERYTHING ELSE">MATURE AUDIENCE>PHOTOGRAPHIC>GAY. The reason for that is the fact that these gentlemen seem to be in full launch mode, and I am not sure you would call these artistic photos.

I have a number of other interesting items belonging to Mr. Champagne, six photography books, signed by Ansel Adams. A number of photos taken by other photographers,

Lawrence Champagne attended the Art Center, from 1945 - 1949, w he kept very meticulous notes, in 3 three ring binders. He was given a number of class projects from certain instructors which had to be graded. These are photos that are mounted on board with an Art Center label afixed to the back, with pertinent information about the process used.

I am not sure how I will offer some of this material, t is a fair amount of photos, mounted and unmounted.

I sold this students Deardorff Triamapro 4x5 camera in another listing on eBay.

Condition is as seen in the photos.

I feel a careful examination of the attached photos, should allow any prospective bidder to draw his or her own conclusions. If you have any reservations, Please do not bid.
