Ilse Bing
Heating Pipes In Basement, 1930

1930

About

Establishing herself as a formalist within modernist photography, Ilse Bing’s interest in the details of everyday objects is evident in 'Heating Pipes in Basement, 1930', which was taken at the beginning of her career. Bing rapidly established her reputation as one of the pioneers of photography’s Golden Age, working within the avant-garde Parisian art world and exhibiting alongside such contemporaries as Man Ray, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. Bing favored the lightweight and versatile Leica camera, which she purchased in 1929 and used throughout her career. Her early work, such as 'Heating Pipes in Basement, 1930', reveal Bing’s interest in embracing technology to accurately represent real life objects. This gelatin silver print is signed, titled, and dated, and was previously in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Gelatin silver print Signed and dated in ink on the front, and signed, titled and dated in pencil on the back Overall dimensions of the image and sheet: 18 1/4 x 13 in. (46.3 x 33 cm.)
