Thomas Struth: Museum Photographs. Text (in German) by Hans Belting. Schirmer/Mosel, M√ľnchen, 1993. 72 pp. First edition. Clothbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket. 17 color reproductions with 8 smaller color and black-and-white reference illustrations.

The true first (German) edition of this important body of work, not to be confused with later re-issues from the same publisher. The text is by eminent art historian Hans Belting. Struth studied with both painter Gerhard Richter and photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher. His museum images express his "interest in the fate of art in museums." Are picture galleries, he asks, "like cemeteries or a living organism where people can nourish themselves about aspects of human existence?"--reference, Phyllis Tuchman, On Thomas Struth's "Museum Photographs"

A nice copy; Fine in Fine- dust jacket; two tiny tears to lower edge (1/8 in./.5 cm); surface scratch near crown of spine.
