Shunk-Kender: Art Through the Eye of the Camera
(1000 items available)
The photographic duo Shunk and Kender created the defining images of the international avant-garde of the 1960s and '70s. This gorgeously produced, nearly 500-page volume accompanies the first Shunk-Kender retrospective, held at the Centre Pompidou, and is based on a selection of more than 10,000 vintage prints from the Kandinsky Library, which entered into the Pompidou's collection in 2008 through a donation from the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation. Shunk-Kender: Art through the Eye of the Camera is the ultimate account of the heady days of American and European postwar art, and a defining example of that fascinating but rarely acknowledged photographic genre: photography-of-art as art.
