Renowned as the most successful portrait and fashion photographer of New York in the 1920s, American - Hungarian photographer Nickolas Muray (1892-1965) revolutionized photography with his use of natural color photography in advertising in the 1930s.
Curated by Salomon Grimberg, the exhibition Nickolas Muray: Portrait of a Photographer brought together Nickolas Muray’s photographs in a retrospective. Garnered from George Eastman House, the famous photography archive in the US, the Nickolas Muray Archive, which is under the direction of the Muray family, and various private collections, this selection summarized Muray’s career, covering nearly 50 years.
Besides Muray’s black-and-whites, the catalogue presents Muray’s articles on portrait photography and some of the color photographs that made him famous in Hollywood circles and the American advertising industry.
