Even readers who know photographer Walker Evans's work will find much new in this catalogue of the Getty Museum's complete Evans collection in Malibu, Calif. Containing 1054 duotone and 31 color illustrations, the book includes familiar pictures such as those of Alabama tenant farmers made in the 1920s, as well as much that is unfamiliar; e.g., his images of trailers, wildlife, road scenes, tourists and the circus from Florida's west coast in the early 1940s, or the carefully composed Polaroid studies made shortly before his death at age 71 in 1975. Also included are teeming pictures of Cuba taken in 1933, his documentary studies of African tribal art and the Deep South in the 1940s. In her thoughtful accompanying essay, Getty associate curator Keller follows the continuity of Evans's major motifs-signs, "found" objects, anonymous portraits, local architecture-from his earliest New York City street scenes of the late 1920s throughout his career, making this an invaluable resource for devotees of Evans.

From Library Journal 
  
Walker Evans (1903-75), whose career spanned five decades, from the 1920s to the early 1970s, was arguably the most influential 20th-century American photographer.

This catalog of the Getty's collection of Evans's work is the most complete, most scholarly, and most useful to date, reproducing nearly 1200 images (though most are shown here in small formats, making it... read more  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
The J. Paul Getty Museum holds nearly 1,200 prints by master photographer Walker Evans, spanning four decades of his professional life. Many of them have never before been published. This catalogue brings together all of the museum's material on Evans. Included are images both familiar, such as his photographs of tenant farmers in the 1930s, and unfamiliar, such as those he made in Florida in the 1940s and his very late Polaroid studies from the 1970s. Judith Keller's lively text provides essential background on the major phases of Evans's artistic development. In the wealth of biographical and bibliographical information assembled here, even the reader well acquainted with Evans's work will find much that is new. Walker Evans: Catalogue of the Collection immediately becomes one of the essential studies of this American master's long and influential career.
