Due to popular demand, the DIA has extended An Intuitive Eye: André Kertész Photographs 1914-1969 through May 29, 2011. If you haven’t  seen it, the exhibition presents a survey of the photographer’s work from Hungary, Paris and New York City. It includes several new acquisitions, among them one of Kertész’s most iconic images entitled  Satiric Dancer from 1926. Throughout his years in Paris from 1925 to 1937, Kertész’s closest friends and subjects were fellow Hungarians such as dancer Magda Förstner who strikes a modern pose in the studio of another fellow Hungarian – the painter and sculptor István Beöthy.
