Uneasy Collaborations: Rudolf Wittkower and Helmut Gernsheim

 

This lecture explores the collaboration between the photographer Helmut
Gernsheim and the architectural historian Rudolf Wittkower, then head of
the Fototeca at the Warburg Institute, London, during the early 1940s.
Gernsheim was hired by the Warburg to document important buildings for
the newly formed National Buildings Record and for various publications
including the exhibition catalogue British Art and the Mediterranean
(1948). Through their work together, he and Wittkower forged an
important, though ultimately fraught, partnership. Wittkower's growing
interest in English Baroque architecture, and in particular in what he
called its 'isolated balanced surface patterns' needs to be seen in the
context of Gernsheim's distinctive approach to these buildings.
Gernsheim's own fame has been based primarily on his later work as a
collector and historian of photography. Yet he was active as an
architectural photographer throughout his long lifetime, and through
various publications his work reached a wide and influential audience.
