California Desert For Sale on 1stDibs

You are likely to find exactly the california desert you’re looking for on 1stDibs, as there is a broad range for sale. You can easily find an example made in the Impressionist style, while we also have 3 Impressionist versions to choose from as well. If you’re looking for a california desert from a specific time period, our collection is diverse and broad-ranging, and you’ll find at least one that dates back to the 20th Century while another version may have been produced as recently as the 21st Century. When looking for the right california desert for your space, you can search on 1stDibs by color — popular works were created in bold and neutral palettes with elements of gray, black, purple and brown. There have been many interesting california desert examples over the years, but those made by Richard Heeps, David Burdeny, Frank Schott, Gerald Berghammer and Stefanie Schneider are often thought to be among the most thought-provoking. Frequently made by artists working in paper, photographic paper and c print, these artworks are unique and have attracted attention over the years. A large california desert can prove too dominant for some spaces — a smaller california desert, measuring 5 high and 9.45 wide, may better suit your needs.

How Much is a California Desert?

The price for an artwork of this kind can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — a california desert in our inventory may begin at $213 and can go as high as $25,000, while the average can fetch as much as $1,375.

Finding the Right Photography for You

Find a broad range of fine photography on 1stDibs today.

The first permanent image created by a camera — which materialized during the 1820s — is attributed to Joseph Nicéphore Niépce. The French inventor was on to something for sure. Kodak introduced roll film in the 1880s, allowing photography to become more democratic, although cameras wouldn’t be universally accessible until several decades later. 

Digital photographic techniques, software, smartphone cameras and social-networking platforms such as Instagram have made it even easier in the modern era for budding photographers to capture the world around them as well as disseminate their images far and wide. 

What might leading figures of visual art such as Andy Warhol have done with these tools at their disposal?

Today, when we aren’t looking at the digital photos that inundate us on our phones, we look to the past to celebrate the photographers who have broken rules as well as records — provocative and prolific artists like Horst P. Horst, Lillian Bassman and Helmut Newton, who altered the face of fashion and portrait photography; visionary documentary photographers such as Gordon Parks, whose best-known work was guided by social justice; and pioneers of street photography such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, who shot for revolutionary travel magazines like Holiday with the likes of globetrotting society lensman Slim Aarons.

Find photographers you may not know in Introspective and The Study — where you’ll read about Berenice Abbott, who positioned herself atop skyscrapers for the perfect shot, or “conceptual artist-adventurer” Charles Lindsay, whose work combines scientific rigor with artistic expression, or Massimo Listri, known for his epic interiors of opulent Old World libraries.

Throughout the past two centuries, photographers have used their medium to create expressive work that has resonated for generations. Shop a voluminous collection of this powerful fine photography on 1stDibs. Search by photographer to find the perfect piece for your living room wall, or spend some time with the work organized under various categories, such as landscape photography, nude photography and more.
