SAINT LOUIS, MO.- The Saint Louis Art Museum opens today Ansel Adams in Yosemite, a presentation of nine images taken by Adams in Yosemite between 1933 and 1958.

Ansel Adams, one of the best-known photographers of the American West, generated some of his most beautiful and enduring imagery in Yosemite National Park. Located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, Yosemite captivated the legendary photographer with its beauty during his first visit as a teenager in 1916.

The prints on display in Ansel Adams in Yosemite come from two portfolios assembled in the early 1960s at the height of Adams' creative powers: Portfolio III, Yosemite Valley and Portfolio IV, What Majestic Word. These are on loan to the Museum through the generosity of Doris and David Lichtenstein.

Ansel Adams in Yosemite is curated by Eric Lutz, assistant curator of prints, drawings and photographs, and will be on view in Gallery 321 through September 13, 2009.

The Saint Louis Art Museum is one of the nation's leading comprehensive art museums with collections that include works of art of exceptional quality from virtually every culture and time period. Areas of notable depth include Oceanic art, pre-Columbian art, ancient Chinese bronzes and European and American art of the late 19th and 20th centuries, with particular strength in 20th-century German art. The Museum offers a full range of exhibitions and educational programming generated independently and in collaboration with local, national and international partners.
