André Kertész in Exhibition Converging Journeys In The Modernist Age

The two person exhibition André Kertész and Theodore Fried: Coverging Journeys in the Modernist Age will be on display until December 29th.  The exhibition is at the Madelyn Jordon Fine Art in Scarsdale, New York.

"Born in Hungary near the turn of the 20th century, Kertesz the pioneer photographer and Fried, an oil painter and master etcher, were destined to meet and work in Paris, escape the Nazis and the Holocaust and carry on their long and illustrious careers living a half-mile apart in New York’s Greenwich Village. This show evidences their progression, which in essence parallels most of the major art movements of their time."

"The exhibition includes over 35 works of art, which span the artists’ aesthetic journey, from the formative Paris years of the 1920’s -1940 to mature works in the US, from 1940 – 1970’s.  While working in different mediums, the artists shared a deep friendship, similar cultural heritage and took similar paths in their artistic ambitions...."
