Robert Frank

Book Cover
National Gallery of Art ;
Pub. Date:
A companion book to the National Gallery's exhibition of its recently- acquired Robert Frank Collection, celebrating a lifetime of work by the Swiss photographer who documented the American scene. Frank embarked on a road tour of the country in 1953, resulting in The Americans, a look beneath the surface of the country's wholesome image of itself. After filming Pull My Daisy, with Jack Kerouac and other members of the beat generation, and Cocksucker Blues, a documentary of the Rolling Stones, Frank turned to more autobiographical work. Photos from all of these phases of his career are here, plus his earlier work in Europe, and a sample of his color work. Five essays complement the photographs. Includes a chronology and a list of exhibitions. 9.5x12". Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
