Description

Heinrich Kühn, The Perfect Photograph

Heinrich Kühn (1866-1944) was one of the central figures of international art photography at the turn of the twentieth century. This book, The Perfect Photograph, was published by the Albertina Gallery in Vienna in 2010. It shows a detailed catalogue of this pioneering photographer’s work.

It is interesting to note that as David Hockney explained in his book ‘Secret Knowledge‘ the emergence of photography liberated many artists to go beyond realism. Artists such as Van Gogh and others painted with freedom once photography was established. In the late nineteenth century photography as a new pictorial medium began to be explored by artist-photographers such as Heinrich Kühn. He wanted to develop photography into a medium of artistic expression. This book shows the range of his work.

This is a hardback book in excellent condition. It has 280 pages and 281 illustrations, 237 in colour. The Perfect Photograph contains and extensive biography, a glossary explaining the special photographic techniques Heinrich Kühn used, also an introduction and essays on his work.

This is a heavy book. If you have any concerns about the postage cost the cost will show up in our shopping cart before you purchase.
