Richard Avedon. Murals and Portraits (German Edition)

Richard Avedon was one of the most influential fashion photographers of the 20th century. At the same time he saw himself as an artist and devoted himself to portrait photography. Between 1969 and 1971 he created monumental murals with portraits that reflected the political and social changes in the US. A selection of these murals and many of his photographs of well-known personalities such as Marilyn Monroe and Bob Dylan can be seen at Museum Brandhorst in Munich. The catalogue presents the photographs in an impressive publication.

The murals show Richard Avedon as a political artist with a clear message. They are the focus point of the catalogue and are regarded as highlights of his oeuvre. At the same time, they are key works of contemporary portrait art. 75 further works by Richard Avedon flank the murals and illustrate the various aspects of his work. Extensive essays supplement the high-quality photographs, explain their origin and meaning, and place them in the context of his complete oeuvre. The catalogue ranges from portraits of well-known personalities from the 1950s to photographs of simple people from the series "In the American West", which was made around 1980. This range of photographs reveals a gifted, demanding, and particularly empathetic artist.
