8.8: Photographic Material , circa 1928-2010
0.7 Linear feet
Box 38-40, OV 42

The photographic material contains hundreds of original photographs of Ashton throughout all stages of her life, many with friends and family. Ashton is also captured giving lectures, and at exhibitions and other professional engagements. Several professional photographs of Ashton taken by a number of different photographers are here as well. Loose pages of a fragile family album date from the 1940s and contain photographs pasted to paper with some written descriptions. A few of the photographs of artists and artwork are by Ashton, while the majority are copies of portraits by professional photographers. Artists include Nathan Oliveira, Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollock, Richard Lindner, and others. Travel photographs are of East Hampton, Europe, and sites in France commemorating artist Rosa Bonheur, the subject of Ashton's book, Rosa Bonheur: A Life and a Legend (1981). The last folder contains photographs given to Ashton. Formats are predominantly color and black and white prints, with few negatives and slides (35mm).
