Hungarian-born Andre Kertesz (1894-1985) was one of the most influential and popular photographers of the twentieth century. This volume presents for the first time selections from the Getty Museum's holdings of Kertesz's photographs, including work from his Budapest, Paris, and New York periods. The book also offers an intimate look at Kertesz through a dialogue among four of the people who knew the artist best during the last years of his life: Robert Gurbo, Curator of New York's Andre and Elizabeth Kertesz Foundation; David Travis, Curator of Photography at the Art Institute; Sylvia Plachy, photographer; and the Getty's Curator of Photographs, Weston Naef. The discussion was moderated by Charles Hagen, writer and critic for the New York Times.
