Exhibition Catalog. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. None of the copies was sold to the public. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Adam Holtzman: Regular-sized volume format. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by various contributors, a Who's Who of 20th-century photography. Essay and Notes by Stephen Daiter. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of Art Basel held in Basel, Switzerland from June 10-14, 2009. Presents "Teachers of The New Bauhaus". The precursor and companion volume to "The Revision of Vision: Photographs From The Institute of Design During The Harry Callahan-Aaron Siskind Years". Some of the finest and most representative images of the New Bauhaus School under the preeminent tutelage of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and his successor-students, who all went on to forge brilliant academic and artistic careers. The New Bauhaus (and its succeeding incarnations, most notably the Institute of Design) offered the most important and influential photography program in the United States from the 1930's through the 1960's. No other photography school or program since then has matched let alone surpassed the achievement of the school and its enduring influence. Few photographs have been produced with such spirit of innovation and adventure, formal experimentation, and sheer joy in the act of creating images that no one has ever seen before. The photographers represented in the catalog are a Who's Who of 20th-century photography: Harry Callahan, Robert Donald Erickson, Wayne F. Miller, Aaron Siskind, and of course, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy himself, among many others. An absolute "must-have" title for photography book collectors. This title is now collectible. This Exhibition Catalog was not sold to the public. It was given as a keepsake/souvenir to Art Basel print buyer/collectors only. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white and color plates. Some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO "THIS WAS THE PHOTO LEAGUE" AND HARRY CALLAHAN, WAYNE F. MILLER, AND AARON SISKIND TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $70.00
