    Paris: Photographs from a Time That Was
    August 13–November 6, 2005
    Galleries 1 and 2

    Some of the greatest photographers of Paris—Eugène Atget, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, André Kertész, Brassaï, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau—were hardly known when they began their most innovative work. They found Paris to be the perfect climate in which to invent and develop a new approach to conceiving the photographic image. Masterworks from these now famous visionaries form the core of a selection of 100 photographs of Paris from the 1850s to the 1950s, all of which are drawn from the impressive collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.
