André Kertész (1894-1985) was a seminal photographer with a diverse body of work that included straightforward photojournalism, as well as, unorthodox, abstracted still lifes. He was born in Budapest, Hungary and initially worked as a stock broker. After serving briefly in WWI, Kertész moved to Paris and then later fled to the United States. He worked as a well-regarded commercial photographer for decades, while maintaining a robust fine art photographic practice. In 1984 the Metropolitan Museum of Art purchased 100 prints by Kertész, its largest acquisition of work from a living artist. His work is in the collections of major institutions all over the world. 

Condition: Lightly sunned (only visible because we removed the mat and the color is slightly more vibrant at the very edges), otherwise good condition with the date and signatures quite readable.
