In Focus

The photographs produced from the late 1880s onwards by the artist George Hendrik Breitner (1857-1923) occupy a special place in the story of photography. No other Dutch photographer working in the nineteenth or early twentieth century has been the focus of so many books and exhibitions. While Breitner used his photographs as documentation for his paintings, they are undoubtedly also works in their own right. He acquired a unique reputation as a 'street   photographer' who could capture the everyday hustle and bustle of city life in a remarkable way.
