A timely exhibition for Valentine's Day, Yours Truly: Privately Collected Photographs, on view at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum of Art, through March 10, 2013, presents more than 60 sensual, romantic, and love-themed works by some of the most outstanding photographers of the 20th century.

Vintage black-and-white images reveal special moments captured by these masters of the medium of photography, including Brassaï, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Robert Frank, Weegee, Garry Winogrand, and others.

Linda Benedict-Jones, the museum’s curator of photography, noted, “Yours Truly takes us back to another time. Some of the works are iconic and will be immediately recognizable to our visitors. Others are virtually unknown yet breathtaking in their intensely romantic aura.”
