A person’s entire life represented by a single instant - the photographic portrait as a form of visual biography. He intentionally incorporated the personal environment, the work, and signs which revealed the intellectual background of those he photographed. With great sensitivity and care, he brought these aspects so strongly into the foreground that they became symbols and clues to the person’s character. Every one of his “environmental portraits” – as they were called by critics - of artists, creative professionals, scientists, intellectuals, athletes, and statesmen is a formally and conceptually balanced composition. With their POWERFUL metaphoric quality, THEY represent a cross-section of twentieth century culture.

Arnold Newman loved teaching, as many of his students attest. “Masterclass” shows us that there are still many lessons to be learned from this master. The exhibition, comprises 200 vintage black-and-white photographs from the oeuvre of the most influential portrait photographer of the twentieth century. The posthumous retrospective includes Arnold Newman’s most famous portraits but also many who have previously escaped attention, along with still lifes, architectural studies, early street photography, and revealing contact sheets that have never been shown before publicly.
