About This Image
A stunning and near-Surreal sense of scale, along with stark and almost overly crisp details, give a contemporary aura to this 1930s advertising image of a chef towering over his spartan kitchen.
Fitz's oeuvre from the 1920s and '30s, was highly prized at the time it was made, but it has since been grossly undervalued by collectors. A one-man exhibition at MoMA in 1986 contextualized him within the Modernist tradition. Writing on the show in the New York Times, critic Andy Grundberg made note of what he felt was an unintended, but "inherent Surrealism" in much of the work. Excellent condition. Stamped verso.
