The Errand of the Eye: Photographs by Rose Mandel

June 22, 2013October 13, 2013

From the late 1940s through the early 1970s, Rose Mandel produced an original and evocative body of photographs, working closely with and among many of the Bay Area’s best-known artists including photographers Ansel Adams and Minor White and painters Richard Diebenkorn and Elmer Bischoff. Though lauded by her contemporaries and featured in significant exhibitions and publications during her lifetime, her work remains little known.

Location 

The catalogue is published with the assistance of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Endowment for Publications.

This exhibition is organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
