Lot Details

Printed 2014. Paper size is 30 x 40 inches (76.2 x 101.6 cm). Excellent condition.

“While I was attending a bullfight in Arles in the late 1950s, Pablo Picasso showed me an issue of Life magazine in which the famous photograph of a bullfight by Ernst Haas, at low speed and showing the movement, was reproduced. Picasso was an enthusiast and wanted me to see it because I was doing bullfights in black and white. The name Ernst Haas was already in my head. Then ‘The Creation’ was published, and I was even more enthusiastic. It was after this publication that I dedicated myself more to colour.
Ernst was a superb artist and a master of colour. With the high level of culture and the heritage of his European roots, he was able to bring an anonymous landscape to the level of masterpiece of colour and composition. No one will be able to replace a man with such a vision, a deep sense of nature, the magic of earth, and his relationship with the cosmos.

-Lucien Clerge, Photographer
