Florence Henri: Artist Photographs of the Avant-Garde
by Diana C. Du Pont
Publisher's Description
"Florence Henri (1893-1982) was born in the United States but spent most of her life in France, where she was closely associated with the major figures of European modernism. Initially a student of painting...at the Académie Moderne in Paris, she quickly became a gifted and knowing participant in the most advanced art movements of the time...In 1928, having spent a semester at the Bauhaus in Dessau, she turned to the camera and moved swiftly from the avant-garde of one art form to the avant-garde of another. For a heady ten years before the interruption of World War II, Henri created an extraordinary body of work--still lifes, abstract compositions, advertising photographs, portraits, self-portraits, nudes, street photographs, and photomontages--that contributed to the development of geometric abstract art and of modern photography in France."--the publisher.
