Ida Kar at the National Portrait Gallery

A new exhibition of portraits by the twentieth-century pioneering photographer Ida Kar opened in March 2011 at the National Portrait Gallery. Ida Kar: Bohemian Photographer, 1908-74 highlights the crucial role played by this key woman photographer at the heart of the creative avant-garde. With striking portraits of artists such as Henry Moore, Georges Braque, Gino Severini and Bridget Riley, and writers such as Iris Murdoch and Jean-Paul Sartre, this exhibition offers a fascinating insight into the cultural life of post-war Britain and an opportunity to see iconic works, and others not previously exhibited. John Jones was delighted to be official framer for this show.
