Modernist Photographs

04 May 2007 - 26 Aug 2007

This exhibition of photographs from the early decades of the 20th century is the first in a series of six that will present masterpieces from the NGC’s international collection of photographs. Examining and representing the expansive, innovative, and often contradictory modernist ethos that shaped the look of photographic art during the period 1900 to 1940, this exhibition will include over 100 photographs from Germany, England, the Czech Republic, the United States, France, Russia, Hungary, Japan, and Canada. Organized by the National Gallery of Canada
