In this video, Keenan Winery Artistic Director and “Wine Wife,” Jennifer Keenan, talks about the art exhibited at Keenan Winery on Spring Mountain in Napa Valley above St. Helena, CA. Here, she introduces the Dorothea Lange Photo Exhibit, one of the most renowned photographers of our time. She also talks about the Yarn Bombed bicycle hanging above the fireplace in the Tasting room, and the old and new designs at the winery, among other art work.
Dorothea Lange, 1895 -1965, was a California American documentary photographer whose portraits of displaced farmers during the Great Depression greatly influenced later documentary and journalistic photography.
The Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) houses with pride Lange’s personal archive, a gift from the artists 2nd husband Paul Schuster Taylor that includes 25,000 negatives, 6,000 Vintage prints, field notes, and personal memorabilia.
