About

Brassaï was one of the most prominent members of the group of European and American photographers whose work between the two world wars redefined photography's identity and enriched its potential as a means of artistic expression.

The current show traces his career using over two hundred examples of his work. Curated by Peter Galassi, chief curator of the Photography Department of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York between 1991 and 2011, this represents the first retrospective exhibition of Brassaï organized since the year 2000 (Centre Pompidou) and the first in Spain since 1993.  

It benefits from an exceptional loan from the Estate Brassaï Succession (Paris) and other loans from some of the leading institutions and private collections of North America and Europe: Museum of Modern Art (New York), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Art Institute of Chicago, Nicholas and Susan Pritzker, David Dechman and Michel Mercure, Philadelphia Museum of Art, ISelf Collection (London) and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
