André Kertész by André Kertész( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Kertesz (1894-1985) is one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century. In a career that spanned more than seventy years, he made some of the most deceptively simple yet compelling photographs ever created. He sought to capture the poetry of modern urban life, revealing its quiet incidents and odd, occasional comic, even bizarre juxtapositions." "This book chronicles his art, from his first works taken in his native Hungary just shortly before World War I, to his highly celebrated photographs of Paris in the 1920s and 1930s, and his studies of New York from the late 1930s to the early 1980s. Greenough and her colleagues have examined the extensive archive of diaries, letters, date books, clippings, and other memorabilia preserved by the artist himself. In their essays and an illustrated chronology, they provide new insights into the development of Kertesz's life and art, and its significance for twentieth-century photography. This book includes more than 250 reproductions and numerous excerpts from the photographer's previously unpublished correspondence and diaries."--Jacket
Andre Kertesz : the polaroids by André Kertész( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emotionally and physically exhausted after the loss of Elizabeth, his wife and lifelong companion, André Kertész was admittedly a broken man who had lost his direction. His remarkable recovery began when he was inspired by a small glass bust and he embraced the new Polaroid SX-70. ... Taken in his apartment, just north of New York City's Washington Square, many of the photographs were shot either from his window or in the windowsill. His fertile mind at work, Kertész arranged personal objects into striking still lifes set against cityscape backgrounds, reflected and transformed in glass surfaces."--Jacket
André Kertész : the early years by André Kertész( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Kertesz (1894-1985) was one of the most inventive, influential, and prolific photographers in the medium's history. His combination of Modernist vision and poetic wit defined a vocabulary that generations of photographers have continued to use. Kertesz's iconic images of 1920s Paris, such as Chez Mondrian and Satiric Dancer and his later images from New York - Melancholic Tulip, Washington Square - have seeped into contemporary culture, and yet Kertesz maintained that the real roots of his work were in Hungary." "This book, the first completely dedicated to Kertesz's early Hungarian prints, offers a unique window on the origins of genius. Sixty-six images, selected from more than a thousand contact prints in the artist's estate, are meticulously reproduced to actual size, revealing the explosive cultural context of early 20th-century Hungary."--BOOK JACKET
