Product description

Bill Brandt: A Retrospective Exhibition

Selected by David Mellor and Valerie Lloyd; text by David Mellor

Cameron & Tayleur (Books) Ltd, 1981.

Soft-bound; 240 x 305 mm; monochrome pictorial cover Chiswick Gardens 1945; 48 pages. Twenty-eight monochrome examples of Bill Brandt’s work from an exhibition of 147 of his photographs. Offered with this book is a soft-bound booklet: Bill Brandt early photographs 1930-1942 from the Arts Council of Great Britain, 1975; 210 x 245 mm; 16 pages. Thirteen monochrome photographs.

The book is in very good condition, the booklet is in good condition.

There is some tanning to the top of the front cover of the booklet, and internally. One of the staples is showing a very small amount of rust. There are some shallow cut marks on the back cover but they have not penetrated the cover. The book has some tanning, and the back cover shows where a sticky label has been removed. There is some bumping to the edges, and the top right corner of the book has been slightly bent. The binding is sound.
Bill Brandt (born Hermann Wilhelm Brandt; 1904–1983) was a British photographer and photojournalist. Although born in Germany, Brandt moved to England, where he became known for his images of British society for such magazines as Lilliput and Picture Post, and later for his distorted nudes, portraits of famous artists, and landscapes. He is widely considered to be one of the most important British photographers of the 20th century. The book accompanied an exhibition of Bill Brandt’s work in 1981. The book and booklet provide fine examples of his work, printed on glossy paper. The book includes photographs from the 1930s to the 1970s, and has an informative introductory essay by David Mellor. The photographs include J B Priestley and Francis Bacon. These items will appeal to those already familiar with Bill Brandt’s work and those coming to it for the first time.
