An example of the photograph "The Orchard Bend", circa 1910, so titled and signed in ink "Wallace Nutting", 8 3/4" by 11 3/4" in the laminated dark old-style likely original framing. The scene depicted is a group of pink-flowering trees by a stone wall adjacent to a dirt track which is picturesquely bending out of sight, likely in the Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts. Wallace Nutting works have been widely collected for decades. He was a minister, photographer, artist, and respected antiquarian expert and author-lecturer. Nutting opened a studio in New York City in 1904, moving it soon to New England. He became wealthy, largely from the sale of what he himself estimated as "ten million" of the popular-selling photographs. He is given credit for popularizing the "Colonial Revival" style. Photo/mat are in good vintage condition---browning of paper. Frame has some missing areas of the dark brown laminate, as shown.
