Pool Photograph For Sale on 1stDibs

Find the exact pool photograph you’re shopping for in the variety available on 1stDibs. Find Modern versions now, or shop for Modern creations for a more modern example of these cherished works. You’re likely to find the perfect pool photograph among the distinctive items we have available, which includes versions made as long ago as the 20th Century as well as those made as recently as the 21st Century. On 1stDibs, the right pool photograph is waiting for you and the choices span a range of colors that includes blue, gray, beige and brown. Creating a pool photograph has been a part of the legacy of many artists, but those crafted by Clare Marie Bailey, Peter Mendelson, Cristina Fontsare, Stefanie Schneider and Erik Pawassar are consistently popular. Frequently made by artists working in paper, photographic paper and polaroid, these artworks are unique and have attracted attention over the years. A large pool photograph can be an attractive addition to some spaces, while smaller examples are available — approximately spanning 5.12 high and 5.12 wide — and may be better suited to a more modest living area.

How Much is a Pool Photograph?

The average selling price for a pool photograph we offer is $1,600, while they’re typically $326 on the low end and $9,000 for the highest priced.

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.
