Edward and Brett Weston at the Amon Carter

Michael Castles and I visited the Edward and Brett Weston exhibition at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth.  It is a small show – 23 prints. I didn’t count to see who had 11 and who had 12. They each had two walls of the gallery.

There were familiar works: Brett’s Garrapata Beach and Edward’s nude on the sand, as well as images neither of us had seen before. A Pepper #10 (not the famous #30) and a later print (1960s) of Brett’s that looked very much like the Pepper #10.

We visited when the museum opened on a Saturday morning, and had the gallery to ourselves. I think we got lucky in that regard. The show is up through August 23rd, and I’m sure that I will visit several more times. Can’t see this work too much.
