About This Item

Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2019. First Edition. First Printing.. Softcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2019. Softcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 50 pages. Exhibition Catalog. One of the most beautiful catalogs ever published on the photographic art and achievement of Marvin E. Newman. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now scarce. A brilliant production by Stephen Daiter Gallery: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with wraparound photographic reproduction and black titles on the cover, as issued. Photographs by Marvin E. Newman. Introduction by Stephen Daiter. Printed on pristine-white, glossy stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago from May through July, 2019. Presents Marvin E. Newman's "On The Avenues". Some of the finest and most representative images by the one photographer who mastered the aesthetics and practice of two radically different schools of art photography: The Photo League (its documentary, moral humanism) and the Institute of Design (its Bauhaus-principled, experimental formalism) . Newman, who received the very first Master's Degree from ID, "embodies the best characteristics of these institutions: A compassion for his human subjects and an exceptional sense of space and design in his experimental photographs" (Stephen Daiter) . "Celebrates Newman's career with over forty vintage black-and-white and color pieces. Features experimental images of inverted sidewalk shadows and manhole covers as well as documentary work from his time in Chicago and upon his return to New York. On view are two more poetic Series from his travels in 1960, of Paris prostitutes and of a small Alaskan village" (Publisher's blurb) . 2019 was a Milestone Year for the photographer: It marked the 20th year of his inaugural exhibition at Stephen Daiter Gallery, the 70th year since he arrived at the Institute of Design, and the 100th-Year Anniversary of the founding of Bauhaus in Germany (the latter leading to major retrospectives, newly published books in Europe and the United States, and full-fledged profiles in the New York Times and New Yorker Magazine) . Marvin E. Newman also turned 92 years old on December 5, 2019. An absolute "must-have" title for Marvin E. Newman collectors. <b><i> This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: This is a 46-plate Catalog, NOT a full-fledged monograph. But its exemplary production values make it eminently collectible for completists. A scarce copy thus. </b></i> 46 black-and-white and color plates. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MARVIN E. NEWMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
