It was great to hear about this exhibition, thanks to Mimi Levitt - Helen is in fact her sister in law. So, dear readers of the F Blog, let us meet in Paris in November or December to enjoy this great photographer´s work. Read more about Helen Levitt on the npr(National Public Radio, USA) site, where you also can listen to an interview made by Melissa Block in 2002.
Installée dans un élégant atelier d’artistes de Montparnasse construit par Molinié en 1912, primé en 1913 et rénové par le cabinet d’architectes Ceria et Coupel, la Fondation HCB présente tour à tour des oeuvres de Cartier-Bresson ou d’autres artistes, au rythme de trois expositions par an.”
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.
