Hungarian photographer André Kertész travelled to Paris in 1925, where his images appeared in the new illustrated magazines. During the 1930s he became an important influence on the coming of age of photojournalism and the art of photography. He later emigrated to America. At Sotheby's New York in October 2005, a Kertész photograph of Chez Mondrian (1926) sold for US$464,000.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
