Labels and date

Gallery 100, ‘History of photography’, 2012-2013, label texts :

Curtis Moffat (1887 – 1949)
Untitled Studies
About 1925 – 30

Moffat’s snaps of what appear to be friends and
family engaged in outdoor leisure activities show
an eye for the quirky, witty and the surreal. A woman
hangs from a locomotive, a man converses with a
mannequin and an outdoor table setting shows an
apparently severed head as its centrepiece.
