Splendid Fidelity: Modern Photographs from the Thomas Walther Collection at The Museum of Modern Art

 

MASI LACExhibitions

The exhibition is dedicated to Thomas Walther’s photographic collection of Thomas Walther, acquired in 2001 by the New York MoMA. The German collector, currently based in Zurich, has collected hundreds of photographs taken during the years between the two World Wars: a period of great creative experimentation during which the numerous resources of this expressive medium were investigated. The exhibition includes iconic photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Stieglitz, Berenice Abbott, El Lissitzky, Lucia Moholy and Paul Strand, exhibited alongside other less known but equally significant artists.
