Henri Cartier-Bresson
PARIS  •  Centre Pompidou  •  Ongoing
Ten years after the artist's death, the Centre Pompidou is staging Europe's first major retrospective dedicated to this iconic figure in modern art, French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson – an event eagerly awaited within the world of photography. Bringing together over three hundred and fifty prints, films, documents and archives, this completely new exhibition highlights some key moments in the 20th century as seen through the eyes of the man dubbed ”the eye of the century“, including Surrealism, the Spanish Civil War, World War II, decolonisation and the Cold War. While most of the
photographer's masterpieces appear in the exhibition, there is also a spotlight on lesser-known aspects of his work: Cartier-Bresson's political commitment and his in-depth work on some of society's most pressing issues during the second half of the 20th century, together with a more intimist side, and his passion for painting and drawing.
