Saul Leiter. East 10th Street
Fifty One Gallery, 2019
Gallery Fifty One is delighted to present this gem of anti-prudishness in our complicated times: ‘East 10th Street’ by Saul Leiter. This series of extremely touching, candid, sensual and delicate nudes of Leiter’s friends and lovers – Jay, Fay, Barbara and his great love, Soames – show us how the artist succeeded in balancing between eroticism and something close to the distinct dreamy atmosphere that characterizes his colour work.
