The Taft Museum of Art Presents: Paris Night & Day

Posted on January 27, 2014

October 3, 2014–January 11, 2015

Fifth Third Gallery

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

Some of the greatest names in photographic history appear in Paris Night & Day, which features vintage prints by French nationals and international photographers who worked in Paris, including Eugène Atget, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Brassaï, Ilse Bing, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bill Brandt, André Kertész, and Man Ray. The exhibit comprises works ranging from the lingering realist perspective of the late 19th century, through modernist experiments in the early 20th, to the startling world of Surrealist photography in the 1930s. Lovers of photography will delight in the many iconic images to be seen.
