Description
Noggle used color film only sporadically. For this portrait of her friend Walter Kuhlman and his second wife Tulip at their home in Sausalito, the coastal California light may have inspired her to shoot in color. Kuhlman was a prominent Abstract Expressionist painter in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Walter Kuhlman (1918-2009) was a core member of the San Francisco Abstract Expressionists and lived in Sausalito. He was a friend of Noggle’s and here she photographs him at home with his second wife, Tulip. According to Noggle’s friend and studio assistant Jim Holbrook, who examined the print with curator Katherine Ware in December 2016, Tulip was jealous of Walter’s friendship with Noggle which led to them asking her to leave during a visit to the house, which ended the friendship.
