Claude Monet and the man from Szeged

I received a very nice email from Mimi Levitt. She is the daughter of
Nickolas Muray, a photographer that I have told you about in some of
my postings to The F Blog. I am glad that this story continues. Mimi sent
me some pictures, this one shows her father with painter Claude Monet.
Mimi Levitt is manager of the Nickolas Muray Photo Archives, LLC.

I can´t believe this! Art and photography combined togheter.
I have visited this blog a number of times, but I could never belive that you, Ulf , would actually contact a relative of the great Murray.
And not only that, you now have contact with that relative.
I´m very glad for this pictures of Monet and Frida Kahlo, and I hope that more of his work will be published on the blog!

there is a lot more to this story
Frida was a magnet like Stieglitz
was at his gallery 291
and Muray! - well he made about 10 000 portraits of celebrities. Respect! He was a very skilled photographer.
Stay tuned to the blog, for more
