ATLANTA, GA.- The High Museum of Art will host “Henri
Cartier-Bresson: The Modern Century,” the first major retrospective in
the U.S.
in more than 30 years of one of photography’s most original and
influential
masters. On view from February 19 through May 29, 2011, the exhibition
comprises
more than 250 photographs dating from 1929 to 1989—at least one-fifth of
which
are previously unknown to the public—and focuses on the photographer’s
most
productive decades, the 1930s through the 1960s. Also included is a
generous
selection of original issues of Life, Paris Match and other magazines in
which
many of the photographs first appeared.
