Steichen - the Photographer
The inauguration of a new room, dedicated solely to Edward Steichen, is the MNHA's homage to his career as a photographer. The collection consists of 178 photos bequeathed to the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg by Steichen himself, and bears witness to the universal importance of his work.
For conservation reasons, this permanent exhibition will be divided into thematic cycles, displaying around 20 photos at a time.
