Yosemite Plate

  • Mary Douglas, Yosemite Plate, 1987, commercial copper plate, primer, oil paint, patina, and wax, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the artist, 1998.113.2

Mary Douglas replicated a black-and-white photograph, such as Ansel Adams or Edward Weston might have made, of one of our most famous national parks. The hand-painted scene makes the experience of the park a personal one, even as it borrows from famous images of Yosemite.
