LOS ANGELES, CA.- The 16th Annual Los Angeles Art Show, taking place January 19-23 at the Los Angeles Convention Center will debut a special exhibit of never before seen works by master photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. Titled “Rarely/Unseen” the exhibit is curated by Peter Fetterman, owner of Peter Fetterman Gallery and will feature more than 35 photographs that have never been printed before.

Fetterman, a former colleague of Cartier-Bresson, encouraged the artist to print a selection of unreleased images including photographs of Queen Charlotte’s Ball and the Bolshoi Ballet. This private collection of less familiar gems, amassed over a twenty-year period, will be on display for the first time throughout the duration of the Los Angeles Art Show. A 2006 documentary based on Cartier-Bresson titled “The Impassioned Eye” will run in conjunction with the exhibit.

Henri Cartier-Bresson (France, August 22, 1908 – August 3, 2004) is known as the father of modern photojournalism and considered a master of candid photography. Cartier-Bresson famously captured pivotal moments of the 20th century including: the coronation of King George VI; the funeral of Mahatma Gandhi; the end of the Chinese Civil War and rise of Mao and the People’s Republic of China. Cartier-Bresson spent more than three decades on assignment for Life Magazine and other journals.

Additional works by Henri Cartier-Bresson can be seen at Peter Fetterman Gallery in Santa Monica’s Bergamont Station through January 8, 2011.

The Los Angeles Art Show continues to be the most important art fair on the West Coast, a mustsee for both the art connoisseur and the arts-curious. With more than 10,000 significant paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, and prints on exhibit and available for purchase, the Los Angeles Art Show brings together the West Coast art community in an internationally attended five-day celebration of the arts.
