Lucien Clergue’s Sensual, Black-and-White Photography

By Delphine de Causans

March 29, 2016

The Lausanne-based Catherine Niederhauser Gallery is currently showing a series of little known photographs by French photographer Lucien Clergue (1934-2014), thanks to his daughter Anne.

Counting artists like Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Ansel Adams, Max Ernst, and others as friends, Clergue was named a Knight of the Legion d’Honneur in 2003, became the first photographer member of the Academy of Fine Arts of the Institute of France in 2006, and was named the Chairman of the Academy of Fine Arts in 2013.

The exhibition comes on the heels of the recent Grand Palais show in Paris, and includes several rarely seen works from 1959. The artist’s beautiful black and white nudes highlight Clergue’s experimentation and deft use of light and shadow.
