Remembering Alan Klotz

Posted on Aug 31, 2022

 Alan Klotz

The fine art photography world lost a major figure last week in the passing of Alan Klotz. The venerable New Yorker was a larger than life presence amongst art dealers, both through his personality and his huge breadth of knowledge. As I scrolled through recent emails between us, I found myself giggling, as I often did when we would see each other. He wrote well and often. He spoke fantastic French, his speed oftentimes putting mine to shame, and when I obviously wasn’t feeling well at an art fair in DC once (I was pregnant but not telling), he brought me ginger snaps he said would help. I bought three prints from Alan in the last few months, one of which was, very fittingly, Glass Distortion, 1943 by André Kertesz.

Here’s to you, Alan. You will be missed.
