Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held jointly by the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago from March 7 through April 26, 2003 and Barry Singer Gallery Los Angeles from April 5 through June 21, 2003. The exhibitions show the range of Edmund Teske's work as a peerless artist/photographer/visionary. Presents "Edmund Teske: Chicago And Remembrances". A triumphant achievement. Teske's architectural photography was magisterial in a straightforward and realistic way. A lifelong disciple of Walt Whitman and later a convert of Vedanta, his art evolved into a much more personal and inward-looking vein, which has been characterized as "Romantic". The Bauhaus influence (Teske taught at the Bauhaus School of Chicago) led him to various experiments using techniques such as solarization, superimposition, multiple exposures, composite printing, and duotoning, all with breathtaking results. Yet ultimately, it is Teske's mystical vision in all its poetic beauty that will move the viewer of these photographs, which are some of the most beautiful ever made by an artist. Teske's work evolved dramatically and demands to be seen in its entirety, now possible through the Permanent Collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, which owns the single largest public collection of his work. An absolute "must-have" title for Edmund Teske collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the Exhibition Catalog still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the greatest artists of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EDMUND TESKE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 15336
