comunicato stampa

This major retrospective of the work of American photographer Walker

Evans (1903-1975). Displays some 175 vintage prints from public and

private collections throughout the United States and Canada, and draws

on newly available material from the photographer's archive, which was

acquired by the Metropolitan Museum in 1994. The photographs span the

artist's long and productive career, focusing not only on the classic

pictorial documents of America during the Depression, but also on

little-known experimental images from the 1920s, photo-essays for

Fortune magazine from the 1940s and 1950s, and SX-70 Polaroid color

prints from the 1970s. The exhibition is accompanied by two

publications: a monographic treatment of Evans's work; and an anthology

of materials that makes available for the first time the artist's early

short stories, important letters, and critical essays now housed in the

Walker Evans Archive.

The exhibition is made possible by Prudential Securities. The

conservation of the Walker Evans Archive has been made possible through

the generous support of the William Randolph Hearst Foundation as part

of the Save America's Treasures program. Additional conservation

support has been provided by The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, the

National Endowment for the Humanities, the Henry Nias Foundation, the

Institute of Museum and Library Services, and The Andrew W. Mellon

Foundation. The exhibition catalogue is made possible by The Andrew W.

Mellon Foundation.
