"New York, N. Why?: Photographs by Rudy Burckhardt, 1937–1940" Exhibition

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

This event has ended.

In the late 1930s, Rudy Burckhardt—then a recent émigré to America from Switzerland—created what are today considered to be some of the greatest photographs of New York ever made. This exhibition will present in its entirety a unique album (acquired by the Museum in 1972) of 67 now-classic images of street furniture, outdoor advertising, and pedestrians, selected and sequenced by Burckhardt in 1940.
