The Thomas Walther Collection Artists Today

The MoMA ‘Thomas Walther Collection’ Exhibition
  After four years of research and conservation initiative the MoMA, New York, was showing from December 13, 2104 – April 19, 2015 the work of 147 artists in
Modern Photographs from the Thomas Walther Collection, 1909–1949,
including a website with in-depth information, MoMA.org/objectphoto:
  “The outstanding and early selection by collector Thomas Walther represents with the shown work of the 147 artists the innovative vision of the 20s and 30s, a transformative period of modern photography and the foundation of our photo-based world.”
  This statement for the 2015 MoMA exhibition is true in many ways and based on the research of many scholars.
  Adding important new aspects this artist-info ‘Visualizing Art Networks’ project analysis with the help of an interactive network graph the participation of each of the 147 artists in more than 750 solo- and 1570 group-exhibitions since 1930
Some artists are more present, some less. Which influence did they have through having been shown with other artists, who are these other artists?

Visualizing the participation in exhibitions since 1930 of the 147 artists

  The photographic works of the 147 artists reunited in the MoMA exhibition in December 2014 were shown in many exhibitions of galleries, museums, and non-profit venues in many countries since the 1930’s.
  Some artists were shown more often than others, some together, some individually.
Based on thousands of exhibition records this artist-info ‘Visualizing Art Networks’ presentation analysis with an interactive network graph these records showing the appreciation of each of the 147 artists throughout the last 85 years.
  The Thomas Walther Collection Exhibition can be found on artist-info here.

  The following information describes the details of this artist-info ‘Visualizing Art Networks’ project.

Exhibition History Records and Concept for this
artist-info ‘Visualizing Art Networks’ project

The Source
  The table below shows the exhibition history records for each of the Thomas Walther Collection’s 147 artists in artist-info database. They are the source for visualizing how they are connected.
  The records for the 147 artists total in 2.291 exhibitions of which are 749 solo- and 1.542 group-exhibitions. 525 took place in commercial galleries, 761 in museums, 456 in non-profit venues, and 19 in collector’s venues, at 1.761 individual exhibition places (as artists were shown repeatedly at the same venue). Although the 2.291 exhibitions in artist-info database are not all exhibitions which were organized together with one or more of the 147 artists they are providing nevertheless a solid and most valuable basis for this network visualization.
  Of particular interest are group-exhibitions: Who was shown together with each of the 147 artists?
  As an example: Berenice Abbott (1898 – 1991) was shown in 42 group-exhibitions during 1930 – 2015 together with 1.353 artists, some of them belong to the group of the 147 Thomas Walther Collection artists. Some of the 147 artist count much less group-exhibitions, some many more, like Man Ray (1890 – 1976) with 134 from 1930 to 2015. The number of artists shown together with the 147 counts many thousands. To visualize their connections with the 147 would generate a very complex and large network graph. As a matter of fact some of the many thousand artists were shown repeatedly together with the 147. Our network visualization concentrates therefore on all artists who were shown 4 or more times together with the 147.

Example Bérénice Abbott

The Network Graph
It might have been conceptual reasons, or to show a different approach, or to show similar background: The selections through all the exhibition places analyzed lead to network clusters for each of the 147 artists, groups of artists shown together with one or more of the 147.

Bérénice Abbott sub-cluster

Navigate the Layout
The above image shows a screenshot in case Bérénice Abbott is searched in our Thomas Walther Collection visualization using the search on the left side.
In the box on the right side
listing (X) Back lets you display again the complete network graph.
listing The link ‘Select this artists/curator/venue’ opens in a new window the artist-info page of Bérénice Abbott with the artist-info exhibition history and the information used for this visualization.
listing The next indications show if the selected artist might have in artist-info Exhibition Announcements, Artwork Offers, an Artist Portfolio or a social community page which can be found on the artist’s artist-info page.
listing The artist list under ‘Network’ shows two categories of artists: Artists with * are Thomas Walther Collection artists, the other artists are artists shown in group exhibitions together with Bérénice Abbott.

Using the Network Graph
listing Moving the mouse over the ‘Network’ artist list in the right box locates the individual artist in the graph.
listing As described above our records show 1.353 artists who were shown together with Bérénice Abbott in 42 Group-Exhibitions: Some only one time, some repeatedly. Our qurey selected only those artists for this visualization who did show four times and more with Bérénice Abbott: Man Ray 15 exhibitions, André Kertész 12 exhibitions and so on.
listing The layout of the network graph interprets these numbers with the shade of color, the diameter of the network node and the distance to the artist with the highest number.
listing Who else was shown together with Bérénice Abbott?
Click the artists in the network list without * and you see these individual sub-clusters of Bérénice Abbott.

Conclusion
To know the 147 artists representing the Thomas Walther Collection is an important starting point.
Some names might be more important to you, some less.
But how influential was each of them in the past 85 years?
The many exhibition places and curators made their individual choice. Analyzing the more than 1.560 Group-Exhibitions in our database shows, how important each of the 147 artists of the Thomas Walther Collection was to them. Furthermore our analysis lets you know the other artists shown together with 147 artists, which delivers an even more exiting insight.
