Believed to be a self portrait, this dynamic study of a nude female figure within a rock formation was taken by pictorialist photographer Anne Brigman in 1907. Brigman (1869-1950) is considered one of most important American female photographers working in the western United States in the early part of the 20th Century and was a rare California member of the Photo-Secession. This delicate nude landscape study is printed as a hand-pulled photogravure on hand-made Japanese tissue and tipped along the left margin to a sheet of Enfield 1887 watermarked laid paper. It was included in Camera Work XXXVIII and published in 1912.
