André Kertesz Photography

To mark Paris Photo month, Artcurial will present its second Photography sale.

Following the inaugural sale in May 2014 that offered a range of photography from the 20th and 21st centuries, this second auction is set to attract a crowd of exacting, international collectors.

Among renowned artists such as Nick Brandt, Brassaï, Doisneau, Horvat, Klein, Lindbergh, Mapplethorpe …

On 14 November 2014 Artcurial will sell a collection of some 125 photographs by André Kertész.

This exceptional group of work, assembled by a close relation of the artist, has remained in private hands until now.

It retraces the creative journey taken by André Kertész : from Hungary, his country of birth, through Paris where he was one of the key figures in avant-garde photography, to New York where he lived for nearly fifty years.

Part of this collection was shown fifteen years ago in a solo exhibition of the photographer’s work at the Jacquemart-André museum in Paris.

As one of the first to exploit the freedom offered by the Leica camera from 1928 onwards, André Kertész created numerous images throughout his career that became iconic.

These poetic documents reveal a sensitive relationship with the subject.

Kertész’s work shows us the sweetness of life, the free and childlike enjoyment of his view, sometimes with a hint of irony, in which he always sees himself as ‘an amateur’, despite being the spiritual father of many great photographers including Brassaï and Henri Cartier-Bresson, and being one of the founders of modern photography.
