Brassaï (the pseudonym of Gyula Halász, 1899-1984) was a Hungarian-French photographer who settled in Paris in 1924. He trained as an artist and began as a serious photographer in 1929. He is most famous for his photographs of night-time scenes in the Montparnasse district of Paris during the 1930s.
The Brassaï retrospective exhibition at Fundación MAPFRE features two hundred examples of his work, curated by Peter Galassi, former chief curator of the Photography Department of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
