The Winter Show
January 20 – 30, 2022
DANIEL BLAU is pleased to present a Winter Show exhibition of modern and contemporary works on paper and paintings by notable international artists including Anselm Kiefer (*1945), Georg Baselitz (*1938) and Andy Warhol (1928-1987).
Among the works by Baselitz on display are a number of mixed media pieces from the 1970s, landscapes in charcoal and washes of watercolor, ink and gouache on 19th Century book pages. The use of these pages presents text as an artistic medium, in which the words lose their verbal significance and become legible as a visual material. We will also show portraits of the artist’s wife, drawn with ink and rendered upside down in his signature style.
We are showing a selection of drawings by Andy Warhol. During his early years in New York, drawing was an essential element of his everyday life and artistic practice. He used a distinctive ‘blotted line’ technique for rendering copies of images, many of which he sourced in magazines of the time. His chosen subjects were often portraits and studies of the human form. The delicate, minimal works on paper are instantly recognizable as coming from his hand. These original drawings come directly from Warhol’s estate and and most of them have been shown in museums around the world.
Also on view is a graphite drawing on paper by Anselm Kiefer (*1945) portraying a nude female figure surrounded by woodland creatures, as well as two early colorful works on paper in crayon and gouache by Markus Lüpertz (*1941). Lüpertz is a German painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and writer. He also publishes a magazine and plays jazz piano, among his many pursuits.
Visitors to our exhibition will also enjoy a bold portrait of Pablo Picasso painted in oil on canvas by American artist Jonas Wood (*1977) in 2008 and a 1960s mixed media collage by Sigmar Polke (1941-2010).
We look forward to seeing you in New York.

Louis Alphonse Poitevin
Poitevin – The Rediscovery of an Alchemist
Daniel Blau is pleased to present Louis Alphonse Poitevin: outstanding inventor, chemist,
engineer, researcher, artist and photographer.
For more than 35 years Poitevin (1819-1882) experimented with chemical and mechanical processes to make photographic images printable and durable. Poitevin recognized early on
how important photography would be to illustrate printed books. He developed the first applicable methods, the implementation of which made the printing of photographically
illustrated books possible in the first place. Presenting 47 rare photographs, this exhibition of Alphonse Poitevin’s work offers the opportunity for an in-depth view into some of his most prescient inventions in photography.
Poitevin is remembered today most for establishing the fundamental principles of four nonsilver process families: photolithography, collotype, dichromate relief systems, and the carbon pigment process. His inventions refined existing techniques and made the mechanical reproduction of images and thus, the illustration of printed books, possible.
The publication offers the unique opportunity to take a comprehensive look at the life and work of the famous pioneer of photography using a large number of different photographs
and the latest cutting-edge-technology research results. The volume brings together photographs and the results of experiments that provide a comprehensive insight into Poitevin’s work and place his achievements in both a technical and an art-historical context.
Alphonse Poitevin here at last receives some of the attention he deserves.

[nicepaypallite name=”Misled German Youth 1933 1945″ amount=”24.00″] Daniel Blau has, for many years, produced exhibitions and catalogues with historic photographs. We are excited to launch the first edition of Misled at Paris Photo’s 20th anniversary edition on November 10th.
Misled examines and illustrates the role of the youth during the Nazi regime 1933-45.
The photographs shown in the publication are mainly German propaganda images found in American press archives (all dating 1933-1945), as well as collected over the course of many years at auction as well as through English and French photography dealers.
The Nazis created both the technical and administrative conditions for the widespread dissemination and political use of photographs. This powerful image-distribution is clearly themetised in the book through its illustrating the accompanying slugs which were originally pasted onto the actual photographic print by the American news agencies. Some of the prints have their slugs from German news or photo services. The slugs’ function is not simply to describe the image but to provide the journalist with as much precise factual information as possible in order to elucidate his angle on a story. In this case, it’s a fascinating insight into a foreign interpretation of German war propaganda. Similar to the disturbing images we see today of IS-fighters and jihadists who exploit children for warfare, Nazis introduced children at the earliest possible age to their ideological and political systems in order to make them an essential part of their political apparatus and warfare.
What does it mean to witness such atrocities? Misled discusses the relationship between image and text. Included are transcriptions of conversations Daniel Blau had with eye-witnesses. In order to show the complex relationships between photojournalism, propaganda, and the function of text, Daniel Blau’s interviews have been left unedited, which not only amplifies their youthful tone but also helps further reflect the function of (photo-)journalism.
The images cover a range of themes from daily life, to military exercise and training. Included are a range of photographs showing young boys and girls playfully training with gas masks, sporting rallies as well as music events as well as young teens in uniforms or even as prisoners of war. The book is compiled in chronological order. These pictures clearly show the consequences of political and ideological exploitation faced by the Hitler Youth.
Misled clearly offers its audience a distinct and unparalleled insight into the subject matter. It attempts to uncover how these photographs targeted society then and what effects these images produce today. Much of the literature surrounding National Socialism use photographs for illustrative purposes rather than as documents in their own right. Misled offers a unique perspective through these powerful images and personal accounts.
Misled explores how history is based on many layers of subjective chronicles, how memory is simply an interpretation of occurrences. History doesn’t merely recount events, rather it is a subjective experience which is continuously constructed.
