Early-Mid C20th - Photography

Brassaï, Bill Brandt & Irving Penn - Through A Modern Lens

Marlborough London is pleased to present Through A Modern Lens, a group exhibition featuring iconic images by three of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, Brassaï (born Gyula Halász, 1899-1984), Bill Brandt (1904-1983), and Irving Penn (1917-2009).

With works ranging from the 1930s to 70s and including exuberant scenes from Parisian nightlife as well as a visual study of British society between the wars, elegantly posed nudes and glamourous fashion imagery, the exhibition celebrates a pivotal period in the history of photography, when the medium firmly established its position as an independent art form. The show also pays tribute to the critical role Marlborough played at the forefront of exhibiting photography during the 1970s and 80s.
