The Face of Modernism

With a concentration on rare and exquisite photographs from the first half of the 20th century, The Face of Modernism: A Private West Coast Collection celebrates photography as it transitions from the painterly realm of Pictorialism into the straight photography of Modernism. From Edward Steichen to Alfred Stieglitz, Lewis Wickes Hine to Dorothea Lange, André Kertész and Brassaï, the photographers represented in this collection championed the technological advances that brought the medium into the Modern Era and forever changed the aesthetic and cultural significance of the photograph itself.
