TruthBeauty: Pictorialism and the Photograph as Art, 1845-1945

by valrac4_a3kqdy

Like impressionism, which challenged the ­traditions of painting, pictorialism expanded the possibilities of photography beyond just the literal description of a subject. Comprising over 130 photographs, TruthBeauty retraces pictorialism’s beginnings with the work of Julia Margaret Cameron, Alfred Stieglitz, Gertrude Käsebier, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Edward Weston and Imogen Cunningham. Organized by George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film, and Vancouver Art Gallery, the exhibition runs until January 9, 2011, at The Phillips Collection Gallery, Washington, D.C.
