Brett Weston's rare 20"x24" Mural Photographs are currently on display in our Main Gallery through May 10th.
Inspired by Ansel Adams - whose rare 20"x24" enlargements are today considered the most collectable dimension of his entire oeuvre - Brett Weston also created a striking series of oversized silver gelatin photographs before his death in 1993.
In 1989, Weston selected what he privately regarded as his finest 8x10 negatives to generate a historically unprecedented enlargement of his life's work. Upon completion of the project, the view camera negatives were permanently retired and eventually destroyed.
Each mural print measuring 20x24 inches was personally made by Weston in his Carmel Valley darkroom, which had been entirely revised to accommodate this single, extraordinary endeavor. Each was mounted on 30x33 inch archival museum board, signed and numbered in a limited edition of 25.
