Peter Fetterman Gallery is pleased to present The World of Henri Cartier-Bresson, an exhibition featuring over eighty prints from the Gallery’s preeminent collection by master photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson (French, 1908-2004). The exhibit will run from September 10-December 3, 2016. The curated installation showcases the artist’s lust for life through the prolific photography that was the result of a lifetime of international travel and a keen eye for visual harmony. The exhibition displays both iconic and rarely seen images from the Gallery’s Collection and includes scenes from the photographer’s native land of France, as well as across the U.S.A., Mexico, the U.K., Western Europe, Russia, China and Southeast Asia. An ancillary installation of Cartier-Bresson’s candid portraits of notable personalities including artists, politicians, philosophers, actors, writers and more will accompany the main geographic exhibition, displaying his humble approach to the form of photography the artist himself considered most difficult. The exhibition will stand as the most extensive survey of Cartier-Bresson’s oeuvre by the Gallery to date and provide visitors and collectors a chance to view the breadth of this once-in-a-generation photographer’s greatest works.
