Ansel Adams 'Moonrise' Print Sold for $360K in NYC

Wednesday, 16 December 2009 07:23 AM

A 1948 print of Ansel Adams' iconic photograph "Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico" has sold for $360,000 at an auction in New York City.

Swann Auction Galleries said the rare print was bought Tuesday by a U.S. collector who wanted to remain anonymous.

Its pre-sale estimate was $350,000 to $450,000.

Made in a range of subtle grays, the signed print shows a nighttime moon over a cloud-fringed mountain range with a graveyard in the foreground.

A later print of "Moonrise" sold at the same auction for $48,000, just over its high estimate of $45,000.

The sale prices include a buyer's premium of 20 percent.
