The J. Paul Getty Museum is fortunate to hold nearly 1,200 prints by master photographer Walker Evans, spanning four decades of Evans's professional life. Many of them have never before been published.
Walker Evans: The Getty Museum Collection brings together all the Museum's Walker Evans material. Included are images both familiarsuch as Evans's photographs of
tenant farmers from the 1930s, made at the behest of the Resettlement Administration, and unfamiliarsuch as the photographs he made in Florida in the early 1940s, or his very late Polaroid studies from the 1970s.
Judith Keller's lively text provides essential background on the major phases of Evans's artistic development. In the wealth of biographical and bibliographical information assembled here-the book includes the most comprehensive Evans bibliography yet compiled. Walker Evans: The Getty Museum Collection immediately becomes one of the essential studies of this American master's long and influential career.
Judith Keller is curator of photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum.
