Provenance Sotheby's, New York, 9 November 1983, lot 143 Literature Greenough, Looking In: Robert Frank's The Americans , pp. xvii, 55 National Gallery of Art, Robert Frank: Black White and Things , pl. 30 Artist Bio Robert Frank Swiss • 1924 Follow As one of the leading visionaries of mid-century American photography, Robert Frank has created an indelible body of work, rich in insight and poignant in foresight. In his famed series The Americans , Frank travelled the United States, capturing the parade of characters, hierarchies and imbalances that conveyed his view of the great American social landscape. Frank broke the mold of what was considered successful documentary photography with his "snapshot aesthetic." It is Frank's portrayal of the United States through grit and grain that once brought his work to the apex of criticism, but has now come to define the art of documentary photography.
