"Brassaï: The Eye of Paris"
1999-10-17 until 2000-01-16
National Gallery of Art
Washington, DC, USA United States of America

This retrospective celebrates the centenary of the artist's birth (born Gyula Halász on 9 September 1899 in Brasso, Transylvania) with approximately 125 works, including the artist’s best-known photographs of Paris at night in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The first exhibition since Brassaï’s death in 1984 to fully examine his career, this show also investigates many of his other projects, among them his studies of high society, and portraits of friends and colleagues, such as Jean Genet and Alberto Giacometti, as well as haunting studies of children’s graffiti made after World War II.

This exhibition is organized by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, with funding provided by The Brown Foundation, Inc., Houston Endowment Inc., and The Wortham Foundation.

Curators: Anne Tucker, Brassaï scholar and the Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator of Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Sarah Greenough, curator of photographs, National Gallery of Art, will coordinate the exhibition in Washington.

Publication: The exhibition catalogue includes an extensive essay written by Anne Tucker and illustrates many works in the exhibition.
