Josef Sudek, Basket of Eggs, early 1970s(324 views)
Description: Josef Sudek (1896-1976) was a Czech artist and photographer. Working mostly alone without assistants, he roamed the streets in the open air in city and countryside of Prague and the surrounding areas with a large-format camera. The photographer produced exquisite, exacting black-and-white prints of cityscapes and landscapes, evocative still lifes, and vignettes glimpsed through his studio window. His style has been called neo-romantic, creating quiet scenes of street life, still lives and views from his window. In 1933, he held his first one-man show in the Krasnajizba salon. Sudek's work first appeared in America in 1974 when the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York, gave him a retrospective exhibition. The same year Light Gallery in New York City showed an exhibition of his photographs. On his 80th birthday in April, 1976, the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague inaugurated a comprehensive retrospective exhibition of Sudek's work which later appeared at the Photographer's Gallery, London. Solo exhibitions of his work have been held at the George Eastman House, ICP, and the Mus?e National d'Art Moderne in Paris. This photo is called, "Basket of Eggs". It is both tender and intimate, true to Sudek's work. The photograph comes matted and framed.
