Re: Pond-moonrise (was: Re: Steichen image in April's 'Vanity Fair'
Yes, I said the same thing myself, earlier in the thread. But that doesn't explain why a print that should be deep blue with black trees and a yellow moon is shown on the museum's website as overall brown with just a faint touch of blue in the sky. Maybe they've just got it totally wrong, which is why I was joking that Judy should go up to the Met and see if she can ascertain for herself whether the print has actually faded that much.
I think I'm done here; I'm getting tired of repeating myself to people who can't bother to read the thread.

It seems that a print that had held up well from early in the century till the Chicago show (80 years) and has been in storage in an archival setting since then would be unlikely to have changed a whole lot since the Art Institute show.
