Canyon de Chelly from White House Overlook, Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Arizona, 1942.

On his first trip to Canyon de Chelly in September 1937, Ansel was drawn to the “beautiful, flowing patterns” of the solidified sand dunes clearly visible in the lower left corner of this photograph. He wrote to his wife, Virginia, “The Canyon de Chelly exceeds anything I have imagined at any time!”


This month, in time for the holidays, we have reached into our archives for the first time to present two images by Don Worth (1924-2009): “Succulent, Mill Valley,” and “Shrubs and Snow, Yosemite Valley.” Traditionally, Mr. Worth’s respective prices ranged between $4,000 and $6,000, but you can now add one to your private collection for 25% off of our original retail price.
