Cartier-Bresson arbeitete mit einer kleinen Leica-Hand-


kamera und produzierte vor allem in den 1930er Jahren
eine Reihe von Bildern, die sich durch ihre Komplexität
auszeichnen. In diesem Bild zeigt sich Cartier-Bressons
Genialität vor allem in dem, was er außerhalb des
Rahmens belassen hat. Es findet sich keine Erklärung für
die ausgestreckten Arme und den ekstatischen Ausdruck
des Buben. Das Kind beugt sich zurück, so, als ob es er-
stochen worden wäre. Tatsächlich wartet der Bub auf das
Herabfallen eines Balls, der gerade in die Luft geworfen
wurde. Der vorliegende Abzug befindet sich in schönem
Zustand und stammt ursprünglich aus der Privatsamm-
lung von James A. Fox, der mehr als 30 Jahre lang als
Redakteur für Magnum arbeitete.

Working with a small hand-held Leica camera,


Cartier-Bresson produced especially in the 1930s a body
of images notable for their complexity. In this image
Cartier-Bresson’s genius is evident especially in what he
chose to leave outside the frame of the picture. There is
no explanation present in the picture for the young
boy’s outstretched arms and ecstatic expression. The
child is bending back, but as if stabbed. In fact, the boy
is awaiting the descent of a ball that has just been thrown
in the air. The present print is in beautiful condition and
comes originally from the private collection of James A.
Fox, who worked as an editor for Magnum for more
than 30 years.

Der französische Maler Henri Matisse ist unserem
Gedächtnis für immer eingebrannt durch Cartier-Bresson.
Das Bild zeigt den Maler zuhause, in seiner »Villa Le
Rêve«, umgeben von Vögeln und den Kopf mit einem
Turban bedeckt. Obwohl es 1944 aufgenommen wurde,
zehn Jahre vor dem Tod des Meisters, war Matisse bereits
ein gebrochener Mann. 1939 hatten er und seine Frau sich
60 nach 41-jähriger Ehe getrennt. 1941 unterzog er sich einer
HENRI CARTIER- Kolostomie, worauf er an den Rollstuhl gefesselt war.

From 1973–1974, Franz West developed his enigmatic 161
»Passstücke« (fitting pieces or adaptives), which attracted FRANZ WEST (1947–2012)
a great deal of attention in the art world. These sculptures Untitled (Couple posing with his

were meant as usable objects and sculptural extensions of

show Franz West and other participants in shrewd choreo-

their reception.
