Who Influenced Saul Leiter?

March 15th, 2015

Episode 83 of 241 episodes

Recently while researching an episode that I'm working on (Saul Leiter, Early Black and White) - I found an interesting quote from an interview stating who Saul Leiter's influences were. He cited Edgar Degas, Pierre Bonnard and Édouard Vuillard. Saul was also a painter his whole life, though he's less known for his painting work. I'm not sure if Saul knew this, but all 3 of the painters he named as influences were also photographers. I think this creates an interesting thread of painters influenced by photography influencing another photographer who also paints. In this video we're going to explore some of the relationships I've found as well as look at the photography made by these master painters and how it relates to the early black and white images that Saul Leiter produced.
