Art News: Bonhams Focuses on Ernst Haas

By David Schonauer   Thursday April 8, 2021

One of the major figures in 20th-century photography, Ernst Haas is a focus of Bonhams New York’s April9 photography sale. “Ernst Haas was absolutely pivotal in reshaping global perceptions of color photography within the world of fine art,” notes  Laura Paterson, Bonhams New York head of photographs. Haas was a member of Magnum Photos, joining in 1949 at the invitation of co-founder Robert Capa. (Go here a 2016 PPD closeup series on Haas.) The April 9 sale features 12 images from across his career, notes L’Oeil de la Photographie.
