Three volumes from the J. Paul Getty Museum's popular In Focus series are packaged together here, offering a handsome set of books on these important photographers: André Kertész, László Moholy-Nagy, and Man Ray. Each photographer had strong ties to both Europe and the United States that were reflected in their work.
The volume on Kertész presents the Getty Museum's holdings of his work from his Budapest, Paris, and New York periods, while the images in the book on Bauhaus teacher Moholy-Nagy include his pioneering photomontages and camera-less photograms. The Man Ray volume presents his inventive photographs taken in New York, Paris, and Los Angeles, including portraits and nudes, as well as his experimental work with Rayographs and solarization.
Each volume contains approximately fifty photographs with commentaries, an introduction, a chronology, and a transcription of a colloquium on the photographer's life and work.420 pages
