With generous encouragement and enthusiastic cooperation the Museum of Modern Art, and especially the personnel of its Department of Photography, made possible this issue on their SENSE OF ABSTRACTION exhibition held last winter. We are pleased to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for many favors and for the handling of an exhibition in a manner welcome to photographers who find that they are freer to work when questions are left open at both ends.

Photography was born full-blown, so Edward Steichen has always maintained, and its progress has been a series of refinements based on the original invention of over 130 years ago. “The sense of abstraction," too, came with the dawn of the process, for the first photograph in the world— Nicéphore Niépce's 1826 “point de vue” on pewter— embodies some of the elements the Museum sought in the preparation of the present exhibition.

An unpremeditated sense of abstraction has existed in certain straight photographs since the very beginning of this art form. Probably the first conscious experiments in abstract photography began as early as 1912, when FRANCIS BRUGUIERE was engaged in making nonobjective photographs.

This exhibition was directed by Grace M. Mayer and Kathleen Haven, with René d’Harnoncourt, James Thrall Soby and Monroe Wheeler as advisors. The installation was designed by Kathleen Haven. With the exception of the historic section and a small group of recently acquired prints from the Museum Collection, the works shown have been lent by the photographers.

Yet Nature is made better by no mean But Nature makes that mean; so, over that art Which you say adds to Nature, is an art That Nature makes. You see, sweet maid, we marry A gentle scion to the wildest stock, And make conceive a bark of baser kind By bud of nobler race.
