  • Catalogue Essay

    This trio of Sudek panoramas comes originally from the collection of Dr. Joseph V. Brumlik, a close friend of the photographer. The two met in Prague between the world wars and shared an intense interest in music. Brumlik fled the German occupation of Prague, ultimately settling in New York City in 1946. He maintained an active correspondence with Sudek, who pressed him to send record company catalogues of the latest classical releases. In turn, Sudek included photographs in his letters to Brumlik creating, over the years, a remarkable correspondence.
