A superb photograph, connecting two great 20th century photographers and one of its leading auteurs. Though widely known for his innovations in color photography, the Austrian-American photographer Ernst Haas had a storied career as a photojournalist, with images widely distributed in Life and Vogue. Haas was also a respected stills photographer for many films, including The Misfits, Little Big Man, Moby Dick, Hello Dolly, West Side Story and Heaven's Gate. John Huston hired Haas as a second-unit director for his 1966 film The Bible: In the Beginning. Provenance: from the Estate of John and Elaine Steinbeck.
