Josef Breitenbach
NEW YORK  •  Gitterman Gallery  •  Ongoing
Gitterman Gallery presents a collection of vintage prints by the German photographer Josef Breitenbach (1896-1984).  The exhibition highlights Surrealist-influenced work from the 1930s and 1940s that he kept from public view and was only discovered during a routine appraisal of his estate.  Many of the images rely on bleaching, toning and pigment printing processes that work color in muted hues into black-and-white prints--a form of manipulation that was extreme to the point of being discredited at the time but which, in the era of Photoshop, has slipped comfortably into the esthetic mainstream.  The effect at times is of a more humanistic Man Ray.  Included are portraits of Josef Albers, Wassily Kandinsky, Bertolt Brecht and Max Ernst.
