In the spotlight: Anton Bruehl photographs 1920s-1950s

24 June 2011 to 11 September 2011

FINAL WEEK! Anton Bruehl closes Sunday 11 September 2011.

Monash Gallery of Art is the exclusive Victorian venue for In the spotlight: Anton Bruehl photographs 1920s-1950s, a National Gallery of Australia (NGA) Exhibition

From his studio in New York, Australian-born Anton Bruehl created inventive and perfectly realised colour photographs for Condé Nast magazines such as Vogue. His work ranges across advertising, images of stars of stage, screen and socialites to his personal photography in the classic documentary tradition

Bruehl led the new field of colour photography and remained at its forefront until his retirement in 1966. He was best known for his elaborately staged, densely coloured advertisements and theatrical tableaux. American photographer Ansel Adams described his work as being ‘entirely contrived, and yet absolutely sincere’.

More information on this wonderful exhibition is currently available on the NGA website.
