Item description for The Essential Herbert List: Photographs 1930-1972 by Max Scheler, Matthias Harder, Bruce Weber, Herbert List & Gunter Metken...
Herbert List s photography has become part of the classical canon of 20th-century pictorial art. By their metaphysical and visual presence, his pictures are as familiar to us and as influential as de Chirico s visions are in painting. This monograph on List s oeuvre presents for the first time all phases of his creativity: the early fotografia metafisica; his Greece photographs blending Antiquity, Mediterranean light and Eros in visions of Classical Hellas; his sensitive homoerotic pictures; his artist portraits of the 40s through to the 60s; and the human interest photography of his late work. Essays by noted authors explore List s particular interests and the photo-historic context of his oeuvre. A selection of List s own writings, a comprehensive chronology, a bibliography, a list of exhibitions, and a list of publications complete this lavish volume in reduced-size.
