Description:
Description: Wright Morris (American, 1910-1998) Faulkner Country, Near Oxford, Mississippi, 1939, probably printed later. Signed "Wright Morris" in pencil on the verso l.r., dedicated "to Bill/from Wright Morris" in pencil on the verso u.l. Gelatin silver print, image size 7 7/16 x 9 7/16 in. (18.8 x 23.8 cm), framed. Condition: Minor rippling to sheet. N.B. In the late 1930s and 1940s the novelist Wright Morris made beautiful and poignant photographs exploring the rural culture of the American countryside. Morris's emphasis was on architecture and still life, but unlike the work of Walker Evans, which provides a formal description of American vernacular structures, Morris photographed farms and homesteads that were fading into the past. Although they are mostly without human subjects, his images offer evidence of bad luck, failure, misplaced faith, tenacity, and human fallibility. As he wrote after a cross-country journey in 1938, "I saw the American landscape crowded with ruins I wanted to salvage." [1] [1] Quoted in Sandra S. Phillips and John Szarkowski, Wright Morris: Origin of a Species (San Francisco: San Francisco Museum of Art, 1992), p. 27.

Wright Morris (1910-1998)
Description:

Chester, Pennsylvania. 1940. Vintage, warm-toned, ferrotyped gelatin silver print. 20,2 x 25,5 cm. Signed, titled and dated by the photographer in ink on the verso.

Both a writer and photographer, Wright Morris portrayed the American mid-West and Mexico in his works. His images are reminiscent of those by the FSA photographers, but they also have a strong compositional quality similar to Charles Sheeler's photographs and paintings. – A few handling marks/creases, corners slightly bumped, otherwise a rich tonal print in very good condition.
