Brett Weston: Photographs
Opening Sun, 1/21
“Nature is a great artist. The greatest,” said photographer Brett Weston, who made it his primary subject matter. Drawn from the museum’s collection, this exhibition surveys four decades of his work and debuts more than 40 photographs from the Brett Weston Archive donated to the museum in 2017 by collector Christian Keesee.
More than 50 prints and drawings from the early 20th century depict responses to urban life, the nude, landscape, and war. Together they show how the Expressionists’ new graphic language disrupted and distorted traditional artistic themes to describe both a modern utopia and a hell on earth.
