Über diesen Titel
Some 15 years ago Cartier-Bresson decided to lay down the Leica and return to his first love painting and drawing to which he brings the same magic that infused his famous photographs. The foreword by John Russell (chief art critic, The New York Times ) and introduction by Jean Clair (curator of draFrom Library Journal:
This wonderful compilation of drawings by master photographer Cartier-Bresson is not served well by its introduction, for Jean Clair, curator of drawings at the Pompidou Center, here resorts to the tired "photography vs. . . ." debate. Because art explores how an artist "sees," Clair could have provided more enlightened commentary on Cartier-Bresson's exceptional "vision" rather than using the introduction as a forum for espousing the virtues of drawings over photographs. Indeed, most photohistorian/critics would take serious issue with his narrow interpretation of the photographic medium. Despite this weakness, the book is highly recommended, for the drawings are superbly reproduced, embodying great energy and sensitivity to line.
