"BRASSAI: The Soul of Paris"
2001-02-22 until 2001-05-13
Hayward Gallery
London, , UK

One of the great photographers of the 20th century, Brassai (1899-1984) is best known for his chronicling of Paris in the 1930s and for his classic portraits of such artists as Picasso and Matisse. Brassai's extraordinary eye and his interest in spontaneous human expression have been enormously influential. This major retrospective was conceived and organised by the Musée national d'art moderne / Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris to celebrate the centenary of the artist's birth. It brings together over 250 photographs, alongside his less well-known drawings and small, sensual sculptures.

'When you meet the man you see at once that he is equipped with no ordinary eyes’'
– Henry Miller on Brassaï
