The first exhibition in France to be entirely devoted to Erwin Blumenfeld’s multi-layered œuvre brings together over 200 works from the late 1910s to the 1960s, and encompasses the various media explored by the artist throughout his career: drawings, photographs, montages and collages.
The early drawings, collages and montages, which mostly stem from the early 1920s, the beginnings of his portrait art in Holland, the first black and white fashion
photographs of the Paris period, the masterful colour photography created in New York and the urban photos taken toward the end of his life shed fascinating light on the evolution of Blumenfeld’s photographic oeuvre and reveal the full extent of his creative genius.
