Publisher's presentation:

"Published on the occasion of a retrospective exhibition curated by Pauline Vermare at the Bunkamura Museum of Art in Tokyo, this sincere, beautifully conceived volume offers an in-depth look at this American visual artist’s oeuvre.

Saul Leiter: a combination of Japanese and French influences

Known for his photography and painting, a rare and beautiful combination of Japanese and French influences runs through Leiter’s entire body of work. His passion for French impressionism and post-impressionism likely played a role in his love and admiration for Japanese art, leading to the characteristic poetic grace and delicateness seen in his images, as well as an acute awareness of transient, ephemeral beauty.
