SIXTEEN black and white vintage photographs, circa 1930 to 1950, all pencil signed by noted mid century California photographer FRED WILLIAM CARTER (1897-1974). The photos are all mounted on card and each is pencil signed by the photographer; two are titled: one says "Santa Monica Bay" and the other "Odes of March/silver 1931". Subjects are mostly California landscapes, with trees, coast, mountains, and one still life. Various sizes--largest is about 10 1/2" by 13 1/2" (photo only, not including the card). The photographer is FRED WILLIAM CARTER (1897-1974). He became well known in Los Angeles at mid century for his photographic prowess, shooting interiors, still life, and landscape. The husband of Los Angeles artist Teresa "Tess" Razalle Carter, he has been described online as a "pictorialist" and as "sadly unremembered" today. Museum collections retain his work but he has been relegated to obscurity by the market. This large group came from a liquidation at the Carter home in West Covina. More photos available upon request.
