ABOUT ARTWORK +
William Eggleston's straightforward depictions of everyday objects and scenes, many of them in the southern United States, are noted for their precise composition, mysterious attractiveness, and vivid colors. Photography didn't use color seriously until Eggleston came along, but that changed after Eggleston’s legendary 1976 show at the MoMA ("boring!", "ground breaking!", "scandalous!"). His work has had an enormous impact on several generations of color photographers and is credited with helping establish color photography as a legitimate artistic medium.

Collector's notes on artwork: How does Eggleston, "who can take a good picture of anything", turn seemingly mundane, ordinary subject into something interesting? With angles and geometries, a masterful command of everyday color, the ever-present quirks of Southern America, with scenes infused with mystery where decay is never far from view.
