Without question, Robert Frank’s The Americans is one of the most influential series of photographs of the postwar era. Not since the book’s publication in the United States in 1959 has there been an opportunity to view these famous photographs in a museum setting in their original sequence. This exhibition is assembled from the last remaining complete set of prints from The Americans, acquired from the artist. The exhibition also includes original editions of the book (first published in France in 1958 as Les Americains), as well as other printed ephemera documenting the history and impact of the work from its creation in the mid-50s to the present. The exhibition tour of Robert Frank: The Americanscoincides with the publication of a new edition of The Americans. Long out of print, this book has been created under the direct supervision of the artist. This tour presents an opportunity to introduce Robert Frank’s seminal work to a new generation of Americans.
