Reception Celebrating Edward Steichen in the 1920s and 1930s: A Recent Acquisition

TUE, Dec 10, 2013
7–9 pm

Contemporaries Patrons

Edward Steichen in the 1920s and 1930s: A Recent Acquisition brings together an extraordinary gift of Edward Steichen photographs given to the Museum by Richard and Jackie Hollander. This exhibition includes celebrity portraits and fashion photographs taken during Steichen’s tenure as chief photographer for Condé Nast, shots for advertising campaigns, and images that reflect the artist’s interest in the natural world. Seen together, these works demonstrate Steichen’s role as a leading proponent of photography as both an aesthetic form and a vehicle for mass communication.
