PITTSBURGH, PA.- Yours Truly: Privately Collected Photographs presents 80 vintage prints by some of the most celebrated photographers of the 20th century, including such masters of the medium as Berenice Abbott, Brassaï, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, Alfred Eisenstaedt,

Robert Frank, Helen Levitt, Weegee, and Garry Winogrand. Together, these remarkable works comprise a meditation on the nature of love in its many forms.

According to Linda Benedict-Jones, the museum’s curator of photography, “Yours Truly takes us back to other times. Some of the works are iconic, and will be immediately recognizable to our visitors. Others are virtually unknown yet breathtaking in their intensely romantic aura.” Whether revealing lovers’ intimate embraces, the sensuality of the female form, the tactile joys of the natural world, or the deep bond between family members, Yours Truly’s emotional appeal is as deep as its aesthetic pleasures. A warm and intimate gallery environment, designed especially for the show, envelops visitors in these compelling images.

Forty-six of the photographs on display were recently promised as gifts to Carnegie Museum of Art by William T. Hillman, a collector, artist, and long-time friend of the museum. “Mr. Hillman’s photographs are simply top-notch,” said Lynn Zelevansky, the Henry J. Heinz II Director of the museum. “They are by some of the most talented photographers of the twentieth century, and all are vintage prints. We are most grateful to Mr. Hillman for his promised gifts, and for his continued support of the Photography Department.” The promised gifts represent the work of 28 different artists, 17 of whom are new to the museum’s collection. Yours Truly is dedicated to Mr. Hillman’s parents, Elsie and Henry Hillman, who have long played an important role in Pittsburgh’s cultural and economic development. Mr. Hillman promised seven additional works to the museum in connection with the exhibition, Impressionism in a New Light: From Monet to Stieglitz. When realized, these gifts will have a transforming effect on the museum’s collection.

Yours Truly: Privately Collected Photographs remains on view through March 10, 2013 providing ample time for visitors to encounter these classic images firsthand.
