An exhibition of rarely seen photographs and paintings by artist William Klein, one of the leading photographers of the postwar era as well as an influential filmmaker, painter, and graphic artist, will be on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery from March 1 – April 27, 2013. A reception will be held on February 28 from 6-8 p.m.
WILLIAM KLEIN: PAINTINGS, ETC. will unveil his early paintings and experiments in photography spanning nearly half a century from the 1940s through 1990. The foundations of his visual language are evident as his ever-progressive trajectory is traced through painting, photography, books, and film.
The exhibition is accompanied by two new books on William Klein, PAINTINGS, ETC. (Contrasto, December 2012) and the forthcoming William Klein: ABC (Abrams, March 2013).
