Lot Essay

In the introductory text to Siskind's first monograph Aaron Siskind: Photographs, which includes the present image, critic Harold Rosenberg comments: 'One will be struck by the resemblance of these photos to reproductions of advanced contemporary paintings. Aaron Siskind's collection is like the catalogue of a show of "best Americans" that may take place next month in a leading New York art gallery. Here are the dual picture planes, the calligraphy, the post-Cubist balances, the free strokes and aerial perspective, the accidental landscapes, galaxies hinted in stains, of half a dozen vanguard styles.'
