  • Catalogue Essay

    From his earliest exposure to photography at the Art Chicago fair in
    1981, Larry N. Deutsch has carefully selected, for well over two decades,
    vintage works by many of photography’s masters including the rare and
    unforgettable Distortion #6, Paris by André Kertész, Irving Penn’s elegant
    and cunning Duchess of Windsor, New York, May 27, 1948 and Ilse Bing’s life
    affirming The Dancer, Willem Gerard Van Loon, Paris, 1932. Each compelling
    image represents an intense love affair, the kind that educates one’s
    emotions for a lifetime. As a collector and art advisor Larry N. Deutsch met
    with, and learned from, such diverse photographers as Robert Mapplethorpe,
    Ilse Bing, Judith Golden, William Wegman, Sally Mann and Richard Avedon.
    His passion for photography was further ignited by the art dealers who
    advised him, and by his correspondence with collectors from Chicago, New
    York and Europe.
