Abstract:

"Can one tell the history of photography in yet another new way? If you let yourself be guided by the selection of works from the very personal collection of the Cologne-based collector Baroness Jeane von Oppenheim presented in this book, you experience the development of photography in the 20th century, not in a chronological fashion but according to the transition of portraits, landscapes, architecture, still life, fashion and film. Oppenheim gave her outstanding collection of about 700 photographs to the Norton Museum of Art in Palm Beach, Florida, in 1998. This book is focussed on unusual, atypical examples from the oeuvres of 125 seminal artists such as Berenice Abbot, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Albert Renger-Patzsch, Alexander Rodchenko and August Sander. 132 illustrations in duplex and color illustrate the aesthetic difference existing between various types of imagery, exemplifying positions from different continents, cultures, and periods. This extraordinary combination offers viewers a fresh new look into the world of photography."--BOOK JACKET.
