Erwin Blumenfeld

A Fetish for Beauty

The first ever comprehensive retrospective of one of the outstanding figures in 20th century photography, Erwin Blumenfeld (1897-1969).

The exhibition featured over 150 pieces, drawn from work Erwin Blumenfeld produced over 50 years from his familiar fashion, portraiture and nude photography to land and cityscapes, architecture and still-life. In addition, the exhibition featured early drawings, paintings and collages from his Dadaist period, and poetry and prose. 

As one of the most prolific and most published fashion photographers, Blumenfeld’s striking images graced the covers of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and a host of other fashion and beauty magazines in the US and Europe.
