HELEN LEVITT. Sandra S. Phillips and Maria Morris Hambourg. San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 1991. 154 pp. with 133 ills. (24 col.). 29 x 24 cm. LC 91-3782 ISBN 0918471222 In English.
The first critical examination of the work of American photographer Levitt (b. 1913), this catalogue surveys an oeuvre composed largely of lyrical depictions of New York street scenes and children at play, featuring good reproductions of some 50 black-and-white images from the late 1930s and early 40s along with 32 chiefly color photographs produced in the 1970s and 80s. Illustrated with works by Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Ben Shahn and other artists who influenced Levitt, two biographical and critical essays discuss the photographer's career and the impact of Depression-era social conditions on Levitt and other New York artists of the period.
