(Photo album by a California artist): The History of Art
1930·(Iowa, Colorado, California)
by DE HAAS, Eleanor
(Iowa, Colorado, California), 1930. Very Good. Photo album. Square quarto. 9.75" x 9.75" String-tied paper over boards. Corners rubbed and worn, very good; images near fine. Contains 145 gelatin silver photographs. Various sizes, mostly snapshot images ranging between 3.25" x 2.25" and 2.75" x 4.5". The majority of the images are captioned. Opens with a handmade title page: "History of Art. Eleanor De Haas" followed by a few pages of text from Shakespeare, with the photos following. Eleanor De Haas was a California artist born in San Francisco in 1912. She appears to have compiled this album around 1930 when she would have been about 18, but it includes earlier images, the earliest around 1923, and presumably many of the well-composed images were taken by another family member, and include some images of the young and teenage Eleanor. The arrangement of the images is neither chronological or geographically specific, and includes many images of family travel and vacations, with the identifiable locations in California, Colorado, and Iowa. A modest but pleasing album with nice domestic and travel images.
