Thank you Cate McQuaid for this wonderful review of our Sandi Haber Fifield show!

Photographs register as reality; simple lines on paper are more calligraphic, less illusionistic. Sandi Haber Fifield, in her show "Lineations" at Robert Klein Gallery @ Ars Libri Ltd. joins her photos to line drawings on vellum, tugging lines in the photos out like threads from a tapestry and flinging them onto abutting drawings, placing us on a thrilling suspension bridge between.

Many thanks to Cate McQuaid of the Boston Globe for her thoughtful review of "Vanishing in Plain Sight," our exhibition of new work by Olivia Parker.

We will be extending this show through July 29, so there will be plenty of time to come to our Newbury Street gallery to see it!

Photographer Olivia Parker's husband, John, died of Alzheimer's late last year. In her show at Robert Klein Gallery, "Vanishing in Plain Sight," she imagines his experience. Parker has long taken still life photos that contend with the tension between stillness and motion, there and not there, and these lovely, affecting photos lean in the direction of "not there," steeping in glimmering intangibles: bolts of light, shadows, familiar things fading to blurs.

We're beyond excited to announce our representation of the estate of pioneering color photographer, Ernst Haas.

Born in Vienna in 1921, Haas took up photography after the second world war. In 1947 his photo essay for the newspaper Heute on returning Austrian prisoners of war garnered the attention of LIFE magazine. At the invitation of Robert Capa, Haas joined Magnum Photos in 1949, developing close ties with Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Werner Bischof.

After moving to the United States in 1951, Haas began experimenting with Kodachrome color film. In 1953 LIFE magazine published his groundbreaking 24-page color photo essay on New York City - the first color photo essay published by the weekly news magazine, while in 1962 a retrospective of his work was the first color photography exhibition held at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, cementing his place as one of the most celebrated color photographers of his time.

Throughout his career Haas traveled extensively, photographing for LIFE, Vogue, and Look, among others. He authored four books during his lifetime: The Creation (1971), In America (1975), In Germany (1976), and Himalayan Pilgrimage (1978). In 1986, the year of his death, Haas received the prestigious Hasselblad Award. His work has continued to be the subject of museum exhibitions and publications, including Steidl's Ernst Haas: Color Correction, which in now available in its second printing.

Head over to our website to see some of Ernst Haas's incredible imagery >> http://robertkleingallery.com/gallery/20th_century/haas__ernst/

This past week, Cate McQuaid of The Boston Globe spoke with gallery artist Solange Brand about the photographs she had taken 50 years ago in China during the onset of the Cultural Revolution. Read the article, and then check out the exhibition at Robert Klein Gallery @ Ars Libri Ltd., up until August 20.

In November, 1965, 19-year-old Solange Brand left her home in France to go halfway across the world to work at the new French Embassy in Beijing. On the way, she stopped in Hong Kong to pick up a Pentax, thinking she might take pictures. Six months into her stint, the Cultural Revolution began, and the images she took went from being snapshots to historical documents. Her photos are on view at Robert Klein Gallery at Ars Libri.

"...these pictures capture an important moment in Chinese history, offering a view that is subjective but remarkable; remarkable because there are few photographs from this period that were not by professionals and not a product of the state propaganda machine - and even fewer in color. Here is a further demonstration of how the most modest photography can intersect with history; that Brand's images seem so ordinary and yet so ominous reinforces their allure. And yes, they may be amateur photographs, but Brand was nevertheless an excellent photographer" (Parr/WassinkLundgren from the Chinese Photobook, pubilished 2015 by Aperture)

Our opening of "China's Cultural Revolution, 1966: Photographs by Solange Brand," opens this Friday! Join us at 5:30pm at @arslibriltdfor during SoWa First Fridays, and catch this special exhibition of historically significant color photographs.

Vivid Images That Aren’t Old Masters — but Look Just Like Them

"Each image takes several months to produce: several weeks to conceive, research and gather the props from flower and farmer’s markets, followed by sketching the image out in pencil, staging it and then setting it all up. The process of getting the lighting and composition just right takes days - sometimes so long that the flowers wilt, the fruit changes color and she has to start over."

A big congrats to gallery artist Paulette Tavormina, whose work was recently featured in The New York Times! We will be featuring some of Tavormina's newest work at the upcoming Photo London fair, which takes place May 19th to the 22nd at Somerset House in London. Find us and her work in stand C13.

Here it is again, bigger: Bill Jacobson's "Lines in My Eyes #317," on view at Robert Klein Gallery. He places rectangular panels in landscapes, and in rooms, stirring up space with flatness. The eye ping-pongs back and forth, trying to reconcile realism with abstraction.
