I have a set of 3 large unusual pieces of art that I no longer have room to properly display. Cyanotype photography is an alternative photography method relying on the sun to develop. It was developed in the 1800s and is most often used to capture botanical images, but can be used to photograph any still object (my own cyanotype collection has grown too large). These appear to have been made from collaged photo negatives on cotton, stitched onto linen, and then embroidered further with blueshades for more detail. The repeated images are covered bridges, barns, three men sitting on a bench, plants, farms, old houses. These are repeated motifs but each one is unique.
Each piece is about 27X28 with frame. The images themselves are about 23x 23. They have a large presence.
Labeled and signed by artist Anne Miller. I think they’re from the 60s or early 70s. They would all benefit from reframing, as the discoloration (maybe water damage) is most evident in the linen margins around the art, not in the art itself. The frames appear to be original, homemade simple wood frames, and one shows evidence of a break/repair. They’re really special and unusual— I love cyanotype photography and have never seen anything like them, but my own collection is too large to display and I’d like to find a good home for these.
Asking $150 for the set, but will divide them, depending on the offer.
