Andre Kertesz, Part 1

2005 was a good year for Andre Kertesz viewing. From January through March, you could return time and again to admire the prints at the Howard Greenberg Gallery in NYC. April through June featured a selection his work under the title "...and the Paris Avant-Garde" at the Edwyn Houk Gallery, also NYC. And then, if you still hadn't had enough Kertesz, you could go to Santa Monica, CA, where the Rose Gallery featured a selection of his work. It was open from the end of June though the end of August.

I'm willing to bet that if we searched hard enough--around the country and around the world--we'd find shows to fill in the September through December period.

By the way, the Rose Gallery of Santa Monica has some of the nicest announcement cards around. They're all the same format for the most part, but that's fine since they're large, rich paper stock, well designed and nice printing. I have a couple of their cards and on some of them the images reproduced are almost 11 x 14 inches in size.

The reason 2005 was a good year for commercial gallery shows of Kert├ęsz is because he had a major exhibition at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, February 6 to May 15, 2005 that traveled to LA County Museum, June 12 to September 5, 2005.
