André Kertész: Budapest | Paris | New York
In a lecture that offers an intimate and personal look, Curator Robert Gurbo interweaves the artist André Kertész’s work and self-portraits into the timeline of his complicated life story.  

From his pioneering work in Hungary (1912 -1925), through his influential work during Paris’s artistic heyday (1925- 1936), right up to his final days in New York (1936 -1985), Kertész’s photographs display an ability to infuse personal narrative and design into a documentary style that was uniquely his own. Kertész (1894-1985) created deceptively simple images of everyday life that reflected his own state of mind, and questioned his very existence and his relationship to the world around him.   

Robert Gurbo has contributed numerous essays to catalogs and magazines; is author of three books on Andre Kertész and coauthor of Andre Kertész, the catalog that accompanied the 2005 National Gallery retrospective. He worked with Kertész over the last 7 years of his life, and, as Curator of the André Kertész Estate, has spent the last 40 years studying his archive.

This lecture is supported by the UF Center for European Studies, The Andre & Elizabeth Kertesz Foundation, Inc. and the Harn Museum Docent Enhancement Fund.
