Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by the Viennese photographer, Heinrich Kuehn. The exhibition coincides with the Neue Galerie’s current exhibition: Heinrich Kuehn and his American Circle and a second exhibition entitled Heinrich Kuehn and the Photo-Secession: Selected Works at Hans P Kraus Jr. Fine Photographs at 962 Park Avenue, NYC from May 23rd. The photographs in this exhibition, from the collection of the artist’s family, illustrate the tremendous influence Kuehn had on European Pictorialism and the Photo-Secession. The intent of Pictorialism— to assert the legitimacy of photography as an art form—is clearly evident in the painterly quality Kuehn achieved in his works through the use of elaborate printing techniques, specifically the gum bichromate print, a transfer technique developed in the mid-nineteenth century that allowed him to control color through monochromatic gradations of tone.
