Brassai: The Artists of My Life. Witken-Berley, Ltd., New York, 1982. "Specially selected sheets" from the original publication by the Viking Press. Deluxe edition of 150 copies SIGNED and numbered by Brassai on the limitation page. Bound in patterned 'batik' cloth with quarter linen. Bound in is a linen presentation folder is housing a hand-pulled dust grained gravure, "Matisse Drawing from the Nude," 1939 (shown at right--print is also signed and numbered by Brassai on the recto; print measures 8.5 x 6.5 in./21.5 x 16.5 cm). No Jacket as issued.

Rare deluxe edition of The Artists of My Life features Brassai's photographs of Braque, Dali, Dufy, Giacometti, Leger, Matisse, Miro, Picasso, Rouault, Maillol, and a dozen others along with some choice anecdotes and bon mots about some of the most familiar names in twentieth century art. The photos range from artful to anecdotal, some focusing on particular works and others on artists' homes or studios. The transaction between the photographer and his subjects is hardly explicit: rather they reflect a gentle, almost sly diplomacy on Brassai's part. In the sub-genre of portraiture that takes artists as it's subject, this is an absolutely essential work!

A fine copy.
