Cartier-Bresson: A Question Of ColourTen previously unseen Henri Cartier-Bresson images feature in a Somerset House exhibition on the emergence of colour photography. It's well-known that Cartier-Bresson was disparaging towards colour in photography but, as this exhibition demonstrates, his criticisms of the medium spurred on a new generation, determined to overcome the obstacles and prove him wrong. Curated by William A. Ewing, the free display in the Terrace Rooms and Courtyard Rooms features over 75 works by 15 modern-day photographers including, Carolyn Drake, Andy Freeberg, Ernst Hass, Fred Herzog and Alex Webb and illustrates how photographers working in Europe and North America adopted and adapted what Cartier-Bresson referred to as 'the decisive moment' to their work in colour.

 

About Somerset House

Somerset House, once the site of a spectacular Tudor palace, now includes a magnificent 18th century art gallery housing celebrated collections belonging to the Courtauld Institute Gallery, as well as the Embankment Galleries (which replaced the Hermitage Rooms and The Gilbert Collection - the latter re-opened at the Victoria and Albert Museum in June 2009).
