Description
This is a vintage print signed, titled, and dated in pencil by the artist on verso; artist's wet stamp also on verso.
The extensive portfolio of photographic artist Carol Westwood (1942-2011), a native New Yorker who lived in Los Angeles for many years, includes a diverse array of subjects: animals, nudes, American and European cities, and portraits. Additionally, she worked on special and still photography for numerous motion picture and television productions in Hollywood; the archive of her entertainment and celebrity images was distributed internationally by Gamma, Liaison International, Stone Images, and Getty images from 1988-2003.
Looking out from within another automobile, we see a convertible with two people and their dog, happily hanging over the side, stopped at the intersection of Melrose and N. La Brea avenues. The building seen in the background on the left is located on the southeast corner of the intersection. Photograph dated August 1989.
