This group of Arthur Rothstein photographs have a very special provenance - they come from the personal collection of Grace Rothstein, Arthur's wife. A majority of the prints have Rothstein stamps, some are signed by Rothstein, and many have detailed captions on the verso that are written in Rothstein's hand. The subject matter ranges from Rothstein's travels throughout the United States during the 1930's and early '40s while he was photographing for the FSA, to images that he made in China in 1945-46 while he was working for the US Office of War Information. Additional Rothstein photographs can be found on the website - keyword search, "Rothstein." Prices range from $750 to $3,000.

Arthur Rothstein began to photograph in college at Columbia University, where he founded the university's camera club. Upon graduation, Roy Stryker hired him as the first photographer on the staff of the Farm Security Administration (FSA), where he became famous for his images of the Dust Bowl during the Great Depression. Five years later, in 1940, he became a staff photographer for Look magazine. During the Second World War Rothstein went back to the FSA, which had become part of the Office of War Information. This included taking photographs in China, Burma and India.
