William Klein Biography

Born in New York in 1928, at the age of 20 William Klein went to Paris to study under Fernand Leger, who encouraged his students to reject conformity and the traditional gallery, and go out and work on the streets; this was possibly the making of Klein as an innovative and ground-breaking photographer. After getting married, he decided to remain in Paris, where he still lives and works today. As an artist using photography, during the early 1950’s Klein set out to re-invent the photographic document. His photographs were often blurred or out of focus, and his deliberately over-exposed negatives, the use of high-grain film and experimenting with wide angled lenses shocked the established order of the photography world. Following on from his street work, Klein preferred to photograph his models out in on location and, not particularly interested in clothes or fashion, used this opportunity to introduce new techniques to fashion photography that are still used today, including the use of wide-angle and long-focus lenses, long exposures combined with flash and multiple exposures.

Prizes in the 1990’s included the Hasselblad Prize and the Agfa-Bayer/Hugo Erfurt Prize and also during this time he created ‘In & Out of Fashion’, a mixed media project including drawings, photographs and film, which was published simultaneously with shows in London, Paris and New York. In 1997 he re-photographed New York and had shows in Barcelona and Paris. In 1999 he was awarded the ‘Medal of the Century’ by the royal photographic society’ in London.

Klein’s work has been shown in major venues across the world including the Museum of Modern Art de la Ville, Paris and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Recent solo exhibitions have included the Galleria Carla Sozzani, Milan (2000); the Scottish National Gallery (1999); FNAC, Paris (1999); Pushkine Museum, Moscow (1997) and Hamilton’s Gallery, London (1997).

ABOUT THIS ARTIST
September 14th 2017
Nearly a hundred years after The Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald first stepped off a boat in Europe, there are still young Americans who dream of following in the footsteps of William Klein’s generation; living in Paris, meeting in bars, writing novels, painting in rooftop studios, fulfilling ideas of what an artist’s life should be.
RECENT NEWS ARTICLES
December 15th 2017
Exactly twenty years ago the Royal Academy opened a now infamous exhibition of British contemporary art titled ‘Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection’ - and a sensation it certainly was! An exhibition that triggered industry backlash, public criticism, and mass media attention, ‘Sensation’ also launched the exhibiting artists into the spotlight of the international art world.

Miami Basel opened its doors in 2002 following a postponed start in 2001. December was the chosen month as - the thinking went - the winter sun in Miami would draw in the shivering art collectors from the drizzly northern climes.

DO YOU HAVE A DAMIEN HIRST TO SELL?
Valium
With two major exhibitions during the Venice Biennale, 2017 has been a year which has increased the awareness of Damien Hirst. With Hirst still actively releasing new print editions, many collectors focus on his earlier work from 2000 and before, such as Valium, Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), Opium, Beautiful, Galactic, Exploding Screenprint (Spin) and Painting-by-Numbers.

If you have one of the above prints that you are potentially interested in selling, please do get in touch with us via the Contact page, which you can find here.
