Description
LAURA GILPIN [Two Story Adobe, Guadalupe District Down Santa Fe Balcony, boy on porch] 1949 Signed Gelatin Silver Print 7.2x9.2 in. Mounted on 14X11 in. off white board ASG# LG/1571 signed and dated on mount below print right.

Gilpin has presented a pleasing intimate architectural view of an old adobe in the historic district of downtown Santa Fe near the Guadalupe Church.

Laura Gilpin (1891-1979) photographed the American Southwest for more than sixty years, creating an extraordinary document of the land and its people. A contemporary of Mary Austin, Willa Cather, and Georgia O'Keeffe, she was unique among the women chroniclers of the Southwest in that photography was her medium of expression.

Gilpin was born on April 22, 1891 in Austin Bluffs, Colorado. After studying photography with Clarence White in New York she returned to Colorado to photograph the place she knew best. Through the early 1930's she produced a series of platinum and silver print masterpieces on textured paper in the pictorial tradition of Alfred Stieglitz, Clarence White, Edward Steichen, Gertrude Käsebier and others. These photographs are exemplary of the finest early twentieth century photo-secession art movement. Beginning in the early 1930's and continuing throughout her life, she made sharper edged images of the Pueblo and Navaho Indians and landscapes of unparalleled beauty of the Southwest. She moved to Santa Fe in the mid 1940s where she resided until her death in 1979. Andrew Smith who grew up in Santa Fe was a friend of Gilpin’s in the 1970s, visiting with here and purchasing photographs from her.

Provenance: From the collection of legendary Santa Fe American Indian Art and Trader Rex Arrowsmith, who was active from the late 1940s until his death in 2017.
