This iconic c.1953 Ansel Adams gelatin silver print, “Coastal Road,” signed by the artist, is but one photograph in the massive “Crossing America: Photographs from the Consolidated Freightways Collection” art sale of more than 250 lots that will take place in two parts this year at Christie's auction house in New York.

Christie's noted that the corporate collection has been “lauded by photography cognoscenti since its inception in the 1980s.” It's an “exhilarating array” of photos of the American Landscape spanning from the 1920s to ‘90s and “offers a poignant narrative of the American life from vast, seemingly endless highways to the skyscrapers of Manhattan.” The sale is “expected to realize upwards of $1.5 million.”
