Ida Kar: Bohemian Photographer

In 1960 Ida Kar became the first photographer to have a retrospective exhibition at a major London art gallery. Despite receiving public and critical acclaim from her contemporaries, she is surprisingly unknown today, yet she was instrumental in encouraging the acceptance of photography as a fine art and her subjects included some of the most celebrated figures from the literary and art worlds of 1950s and 1960s Europe and Russia.

This exhibition will be drawn from the Ida Kar Archive, acquired by the National Portrait Gallery and will include around 40 of her portraits.
