About this photograph :
In 1946, the famous architect Richard Neutra, a champion of modernism, built this desert house situated in Palm Springs for E. Kaufmann. More than 24 years afterwards, Slim Aarons photographs the villa from the pool side. The composition completely revolves around a unique vanishing point situated between the two silhouettes at the end of the pool. Following in the example of the house which is a play on vertical and horizontal layouts, the photograph is supported by parallel and perpendicular lines which seem to cite the modernism of the dwelling. In 2008, Christie’s is entrusted with the sale of this house. The successful bidder pays 15 million dollars at the auction. This acquisition, which takes place as part of a contemporary art sale, puts this villa in an artistic context. Slim Aarons is really photographing a work of art, recapturing the architectural codes of the house and introducing its inhabitants. (1970)
