Andre Kertesz Biography and Important Works

Known for capturing the essence of a moment, André Kertész was considered one of the most influential photographers of the 20th Century. He was born in Budapest, Hungary, on July 2, 1894. André Kertész’s pictures of everyday life greatly influenced magazine photography in the United States and Europe as his distinctive style showed generations of photographers how to shoot without intruding in the situation or the emotion of the day. After being severely injured during WWI, he returned to Budapest. Surprisingly, his post-war career initially continued as a clerk in the Budapest stock exchange. Kertész moved to Paris in 1925 to work as a freelance photographer. He soon made friends with some of the leading artists of the time, including Fernand Léger, Marc Chagall and Piet Mondrian. In 1928 he bought a Leica, a small handheld camera which gave him the freedom to move about the streets of Paris. The camera-enabled him to capture spontaneous moments of urban life, a subject that would fascinate him throughout his career. With his Leica and the friendship of these artists, he was able to develop a visual history of Paris. His work appeared in French, Italian and British publications, including prominent magazines and newspapers of the day like the London Sunday Times. At the onset of Hitler's Germany and the specter of war on the horizon, Kertész moved to New York City in 1936 to pursue his career as a photographer. He became a United States citizen in 1944. In 1949 he became a staple with Condé Nast. Alongside Alexander Liberman, Kertész helped to transform and elevate House and Garden magazine into the publication envisioned by Mr. Liberman. Once Kertész retired from commercial work in 1962, his work began to be recognized as Fine art photography. His projects harkened back to his early work in Hungary with street scenes, still-life and the movements of everyday people. Kertész's work is in numerous private and public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, J. Paul Getty Museum, Center for Creative Photography, Smithsonian Institution and Pompidou Center. As per Brassaï’s words, “André Kertész has two qualities that are essential for a great photographer, an insatiable curiosity about the world, about people and life and a precise sense of form." Kertész died in New York City, on September 27, 1985.

Finding the Right Photography for You

Find a broad range of fine photography on 1stDibs today.

The first permanent image created by a camera — which materialized during the 1820s — is attributed to Joseph Nicéphore Niépce. The French inventor was on to something for sure. Kodak introduced roll film in the 1880s, allowing photography to become more democratic, although cameras wouldn’t be universally accessible until several decades later. 

Digital photographic techniques, software, smartphone cameras and social-networking platforms such as Instagram have made it even easier in the modern era for budding photographers to capture the world around them as well as disseminate their images far and wide. 

What might leading figures of visual art such as Andy Warhol have done with these tools at their disposal?

Today, when we aren’t looking at the digital photos that inundate us on our phones, we look to the past to celebrate the photographers who have broken rules as well as records — provocative and prolific artists like Horst P. Horst, Lillian Bassman and Helmut Newton, who altered the face of fashion and portrait photography; visionary documentary photographers such as Gordon Parks, whose best-known work was guided by social justice; and pioneers of street photography such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, who shot for revolutionary travel magazines like Holiday with the likes of globetrotting society lensman Slim Aarons.

Find photographers you may not know in Introspective and The Study — where you’ll read about Berenice Abbott, who positioned herself atop skyscrapers for the perfect shot, or “conceptual artist-adventurer” Charles Lindsay, whose work combines scientific rigor with artistic expression, or Massimo Listri, known for his epic interiors of opulent Old World libraries.

Throughout the past two centuries, photographers have used their medium to create expressive work that has resonated for generations. Shop a voluminous collection of this powerful fine photography on 1stDibs. Search by photographer to find the perfect piece for your living room wall, or spend some time with the work organized under various categories, such as landscape photography, nude photography and more.
