Though not as well known as either of the Americans mentioned in the show's title, the Austrian Kuehn (1866–1944) was an influential figure in the development of fine-art photography. He was one of the medium's first experimenters with early color-film technologies like Autochrome, which gave his pictorialist landscapes and portraiture a particularly haunting, evanescent quality.
