"These studies of trees in the park at Saint-Cloud are essentially portraits of trees, some full-length, some details of roots or trunks -- each uniquely stark." (Fraenkel Gallery)

"At get's work is a simple revelation of the simplest aspect of his environment. There is no superimposed symbolic motive, no tottered application of design, no intellectual axe to grind. The Atget prints are... perhaps the earliest expression of true photographic art." (Ansel Adams). Fine. Item #51422
