The KunstHausWien presents a retrospective with more than 200 works by French photographer Lucien Clergue. These masterpieces are exhibited in Austria for the first time.
His friend Pablo Picasso, who acknowledged the value and artistic quality of Lucien Clergue’s work at a very early stage, compared his nudes with the works of the famous painters Renoir, Manet and Velázquez in the 1950s. Jean Cocteau described Clergue as the “poet with the camera”.
