About the Artist
Dubbed "the eye of Paris" in an essay by Henry Miller in 1934, extraordinary photographer BrassaÃÂ¿ (born Gyula Halasz) captured the essence of nighttime Paris in his photographs, from charming city streets, to the mysteries of the dark pubs and brothels. In addition to contributing to various magazines and publishing many books, Brassai was a regular photographer for HarperÃ¤Ã³Â»s Bazaar for 25 years and the recipient of numerous awards, including the first Grand Prix National de la Photographie in Paris in 1978.
This poster is a reproduction of a photograph taken by Brassai titled Les Escaliers de Montmartre, Paris, 1930s. It depicts the charmingly romantic city streets of Paris at night.
