Herbert List (1903-1975) was a German photographer who worked in a variety of genres including travel photography, war reportage, fashion photography, portraiture and Surrealism. 

List came from a wealthy family and was able to dedicate himself to photography. In 1936, he left Germany for Paris because of both creative reasons and the increasingly hostile political situation as the Nazis came to power. 

Over the next 30 years List had a fascinatingly versatile and dynamic career. Particularly in the 1950's List was a sought-after portrait photographer and shot many of the European avant-garde or cultural elite of the era including Picasso, Colette, Miro, Chagall, Stravinsky, Cocteau, Alexander Calder, George Braque, Marlene Dietrich and the list goes on. 

Caviar20 recommends Herbert List: The Monograph as a comprehensive introduction to his work.
