    Art Brokerage: Nat Finkelstein American Artist: B. 1933. Born in Brooklyn in 1933, Nat Finkelstein studied photography under Alexey Brodovitch, the legendary art director of Harper's Bazaar, and worked as a photojournalist for the Black Star and PIX photo agencies, reporting primarily on the political developments of various subcultures in New York City in the 1960s. In 1964, Finkelstein entered Andy Warhol's Factory as a photojournalist and remained for three years; Finkelstein's photographs from this period are now regarded as some of the most iconic of the time. Nat is perhaps best known for his work with Andy Warhol as Warhol's 'unofficial' in-house photographer - these Warhol photographs are now recognized as some of the best photographic work of the 20th century. For three years, 1964-1967, photojournalist Nat Finkelstein documented the weird and wonderful activities of Andy Warhol and his associates. Finkelstein became a controversial and forthright member of Andy Warhol's Factory. Because of his constant presence, he was able to make photographs of great intensity and intimacy, furnishing an insider's view of that famous studio. These extraordinary photographs capture the ramshackle studio; familiar silk screens are casually propped against the wall while a seemingly endless cast of the beautiful and famous pay homage. Finklestein is reputed to have had a 'on/off' relationship with Warhol and it is his lack of sycophantic reverence that gives these photographs their edge. Since then, Finkelstein has exhibited his work worldwide in over seventy-five solo and group shows at museums and galleries including the Cedar Bar, the International Center of Photography, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh; Tate Modern, Victoria and Albert Museum, The Photographer's Gallery, the Saatchi Gallery, London; and the Ludwig Museum, Budapest, among many others Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
