The Metropolitan Museum of Art will present a major retrospective of the photographs of Irving Penn to mark the centennial of the artist’s birth.

 


 

La storia della fotografia, ma anche della moda, non sarebbe mai stata la stessa senza le visioni di Irving Penn.

Il Metropolitan Museum of Art di New York, fino al 30 giugno, celebra il centenario della nascita di Irving Penn con una mostra che si propone come la più grande e completa retrospettiva sull’autore. Con il prezioso contributo della Irving Penn Foundation, le iconiche immagini di Lisa Fonssagrives, gli still life e le immagini dedicate alle tribù della Nuova Guinea, la mostra mette in scena più di duecento scatti che ricostruiscono e celebrano una magnifica carriera.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art will present a major retrospective of the photographs of Irving Penn to mark the centennial of the artist’s birth. Over the course of his nearly 70-year career, Irving Penn (1917–2009) mastered a pared-down aesthetic of studio photography that is distinguished for its meticulous attention to composition, nuance, detail, and printmaking. Irving Penn: Centennial, opening April 24, 2017, will be the most comprehensive exhibition of the great American photographer’s work to date and will include both masterpieces and hitherto unknown prints from all his major series.

 

 

The exhibition is accompanied by a 372-page book with 365 illustrations, including full-page reproductions of all the photographs exhibited, by Maria Morris Hambourg and Jeff L. Rosenheim.
