Willy Kessels (1898-1974) - Portret
silver bromide print - Blind stamp recto lower right

Beautiful vintage print of the Belgian Avantgarde photographer Willy Kessels. Kessels is one of the greater Belgian photographers of the twentieth century. In 1932, he participated in the first ‘Internationale’ of photography in Brussels in the company of Germaine Krull, André Kertesz; Mohly-Nagy and Man Ray. After being linked to the collaboration during the Second World War, he remained an obscure figure in Belgian art history for a long time. In the 21st century, his work is getting more attention thanks to a large retrospective exhibition in the Antwerp FOMU.

Photog has the modernist embossed stamp of Kessels. Silvering on the edges (see photos).
