Saul Leiter: Early Color
Hardcover - English

This is a reprint of the immensely successful Early Color (2008), which presented Saul Leiter's remarkable body of color work to the public for the first time in book form. Although Edward Steichen had exhibited some of Leiter's color photography at The Museum of Modern Art in 1953, it remained virtually unknown to the world thereafter. Leiter moved to New York in 1946 to become a painter, but through his friendship with Richard Pousette-Dart he quickly recognized the creative potential of photography. Leiter continued to paint, exhibiting with Philip Guston and Willem de Kooning, but the camera remained his ever-present means of recording life in the metropolis. None of Leiter's contemporaries, with the partial exception of Helen Levitt, assembled a comparable body of work: subtle, often abstract compositions of lyrical, eloquent color.

Saul Leiter was born in Pittsburgh in 1923, the son of a rabbi. His work was shown at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1947 and at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1953. Then--after a long gap comprising most of the 1950s through the 1980s--it began to appear in solo shows at major venues again, first at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London (1991), then the National Gallery in Washington, D.C.
