Photos By Edward Weston Are Found in House of Average American
Experts say that four photos worth US $260,000.
A resident of California, learned that he owns four images by Edward Weston – an early 20th century avant garde photographer. He brought the four old prints to Antique Roadshow where an expert named the price for the photos between $180,000 and $260,000. The surprised man said the prints had been in his family for over half a century – they came to his father from the artist Warren Newcombe.
“I’m conflicted. I don’t know whether I should put them back in the box and hide them away or hang them for people to enjoy,”said Andrew.
