During the 1960s, Brandt photographed many of his contemporaries late in life, from Miró and Ernst to Dubuffet and Giacometti. He also made close-up photographs of their eyes that are among his finest works; this part-portrait shows time carved into the flesh of the great Dadaist sculptor Jean Arp.
