About this Item

A fine original photograph of Zane and Romer Grey displaying the results of a bear hunt together. The Photograph is SIGNED BY ZANE GREY, but the ink has faded and only the impression remains viewable in angled light. Black and white photograph, approximately 8 by 6.5 inches, mounted in textured buff board with beveled edge and handsomely framed in wood and glazed. The photograph itself is in beautiful condition with no fading or chipping, the contrast is excellent and the image is defined and clear, frame and mounting are very fine, the signature however is faded to near invisibility. A very handsome original photograph of brothers Zane and Romer Grey. In hunting attire the two men are standing in a forested area with two black bears from their hunting trip. One of the bears is on the ground, the other suspended from a tree. Though an accomplished writer on many subjects Zane Grey is probably best remembered for his novels of the American West. He was a highly outspoken and influential conservationist. His main motivation behind the writing of his western novels was to spark interest in America’s great wilderness areas and National Parks, and thus he hoped to encourage others to preserve them. The period of his writing coincides with when many of the great National Parks we now take for granted were only coming into being. Without the influence of men like Grey one wonders how much lesser our modern America might have been. Romer Grey was known to frequently accompany Zane on his excursions out west and on his fishing excursions around the world. While also being a published author of books on game fishing and hunting, Romer was primarily a noted photographer. A fact which may explain the excellent quality and composition of this picture.
