Brassai.

CENTRE GEORGES POMPIDOU

This second major retrospective celebrating the centennial of Brassai's birth comes on the heels of the still touring Houston Museum of Fine Art effort. One difference: the proverbial matter of size. Curators Alain Sayag and Annick Lionel-Marie have rounded up a whopping 350 photographs--more than twice the number on view at the MFA show--not to mention fifty drawings and thirty sculptures, along with books by and about the Transylvanian transplant whose alluring vision remains synonymous with the Paris of our imaginations. Although the sheer number of works is impressive, the show does face stiff competition from Houston's thoughtfully edited gem. Apr. 19-June 26; Academie de France, Rome, 2001; Bunkamara Museum of Art, Tokyo, 2002; Akademie der Kunste, Berlin, 2002.
