the deLIGHTed eye: Modernist Masterworks from a Private Collection will feature 71 extraordinary vintage prints, executed mainly between 1900 and 1925, that beautifully illustrate the dawn of modern photography. Assembled by a South American collector who chose to focus on photographers keenly influenced by the artistic revolution in Western Europe at the turn of the century, the deLIGHTed eye is one of the most important collections of Modernist photographs known today. The works have been displayed publically only once, at the International Center of Photography in 1985. Highlights include prints by Edward Weston, Alfred Stieglitz, Constantin Brancusi, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Man Ray, Tina Modotti, Christian Schad, Edward Steichen, and Paul Strand.
