About This Image

Signed in ink on the recto in lower margin. A stunningly beautiful color landscape.French photographer Lucien Clergue’s work is deeply rooted in his home city of Arles, where he was born on August 14, 1934. Picking up a camera as a young man in post-war Provence, he took a different route than other artists of his generation, turning his lens on the rubble and destruction of France after the war, often shooting in low-lit, decimated homes.In addition to his scenes of the city, Clergue’s oeuvre includes incisive images of peers such as Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, and other iconic figures in the south of France. It is his faceless female nudes, however—from the subtle eroticism of his beachside scenes to the chic geometries of his black-and-white “Nu Zebre” series—that are the artist’s signature work.He died on November 15, 2014, Nîmes, France.
