This relatively large silver print of Henry Gilpin’s most iconic image strikes the right balance between size and film grain. Perhaps no other image defines Highway 1 and the California culture more than Gilpin’s. This print is signed in pencil mount recto and stamped mount verso. The Pacific Coast Highway sweeps along the continent’s edge, abutted by mountains and sea. No other image defines this emblem of California like Henry Gilpin’s magnum opus “Highway 1, 1967”. The afternoon sun silhouettes the Santa Lucia range of Big Sur, highlighting the sea spray between each rocky outcrop. While this image is a clear departure from reality, it contains the essential feeling one gets from sailing down Highway 1 on a bright day above booming surf.
