French Twist: Masterworks of Photography from Atget to Man Ray

September 12, 2015 - November 8, 2015

Hodge Galleries Henry Gallery

Don't miss the final week of French Twist where you can see early 20th-century photographs by artists like Eugène Atget, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Man Ray. Rapid technological, cultural, and political developments of the early 20th century plunged Europe into a period of intense artistic creativity. Ambitious young photographers from around the world flocked to Paris, where they documented the old ways of life and pushed photographic boundaries to question the reality of the image. 

All works are from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg. This exhibition was organized by art2art Circulation Exhibitions.
