Some 150 masterpieces will be featured from the National Gallery's photography collection, all acquired within the last quarter century.
Highlighting exquisite nineteenth-century and turn-of-the-century pictorialist works; exceptional examples of international modernism of the 1920s and 1930s and seminal mid-twentieth-century American photography; as well as photographs exploring new directions in color and conceptual art in the 1970s and 1980s, the exhibition demonstrates the richness of the National Gallery’s photography collection and showcases the vitality of the medium as an art form from its birth through the end of the twentieth century.
