Taken during Kertész's inaugural exhibition at Jean Slivinsky's gallery Au Sacre du Printemps, this group portrait reveals much of the scope of the photographer's life at the time. It is divided equally, pictorially speaking, between art and friends. Shown are his colleagues including Slivinsky (center with announcement), and Herwarth Walden, the director of the Berlin gallery and magazine Der Sturm. A dozen Kertész photographs and eight small geometric abstractions by Ida Thal, with whom Kertész shared the exhibition are visible as well.
A similar print of this image, also on carte postale and untrimmed, is in the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum.
