French Twist: Masterworks of Photography from Atget to Man Ray March 24 – May 19, 2018 at the Foosaner Art Museum

This groundbreaking show features 100 rare vintage prints from the golden age of French photography, 1900-1940. Et quel variété! From the lyrical architectural views of Atget to the Surrealist inventions of Man Ray and Dora Maar, from the boyish wonder of Lartigue to the crepuscular moodiness of Brassaï, from the elegant still lifes of Kertész to the sophisticated street theater of Cartier-Bresson and Ilse Bing, all major facets of French photography are surveyed and celebrated.

All artworks are from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg. This exhibition was curated by art2art Circulating Exhibits.
