Icônes du XXe siècle
Past: October 16, 2013 → January 26, 2014
The remarkable artistic career of Yousuf Karsh was matched only by the extraordinary lives of cultural, political, artistic and intellectual figures that he photographed.
Organized by Jerry Fielder, Curator and Director of the Estate of Yousuf Karsh, uniquely for the Mona Bismarck American Center, this exhibition celebrates Karsh’s exceptional contribution to shaping personal and historical memory throughout the twentieth century.
Original photographs of American and French luminaries are presented alongside archival material from the dozens of Life and Paris-Match covers that Karsh captured, marking the transformation of his intimate portraits into public icons.
