Arnold Newman is a new addition at Artnet's Artist Works Catalogues, but his name belongs in the pantheon of great American black-and-white photographers, right up there with Carleton Watkins, Imogen Cunningham, and Ed Weston. As the following pictures illustrate, Newman was very very good with color too. He died in 2006.

I only began really looking at art four or five years ago, which I did not to learn about art but to relax. Consequently, I don't know a lot about it, but I do know what I like.
