DOROTHEA LANGE. With a Critical Essay By George P. Elliott

New York: Museum of Modern Art, (1966). First edition. Hardcover. Lange's death (late in 1965) ended a photographic career which for thirty years had been a seminal influence in twentieth-century photography. Her extraordinary response to the problems of visual documentation gave photography a new awareness of the interaction between artistic form and meaningful content. In this book, published in conjunction with the Museum's retrospective exhibition of her work (c. 1920-1963), George P. Elliott, a close friend of the photographer for more than twenty years, recreates Miss Lange's career within the framework of her art. He provides a memorable commentary on the numerous series and individual works which reflect the artist's lyrical sensibility, and which honor both the eye and the intellect. 112 pages with 91 illustrations. A near fine copy bound in cloth over boards with a near fine, clean dust jacket. Item #14270
