About

Renowned for her documentary photography of the American landscape, Dorothea Lange is regarded as one of the most important photographers of the 20th century. Her photographs responded to the social and political injustices that she observed in her life and are deeply personal records of everyday American conditions. 'Still Life With Books And Utensils, 1961', is a later work of Lange’s that depicts a kitchen interior filled with cookbooks, utensils, and personal artifacts. The viewer is invited to observe the everyday domesticity within the still life and piece together the story of those who lived amidst these objects. A bottle of red wine, a box of cake mix, carved wooden figures, and various plants all come together to document the inhabitation of this space. Flush-mounted on card and printed in 1965, this print was previously in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Gelatin silver print, flush-mounted on card, printed 1965 Variously numbered in pencil on the back of the flush mount Overall dimensions of image, sheet, and flush mount: 11 x 16 5/8 in. (27.9 x 42.2 cm.)
