Irving Penn

by Irving Penn
Publisher's Description
In 1999, at the age of 82, Irving Penn photographed dancer Alexandra Beller, posing and dancing nude, over the course of four sessions in his studio. The work is introduced by Anne Wilkes Tucker of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston who ably discusses the style and content of each of the four sessions. Furthermore, in a highly illuminating, albeit brief essay, Sylvia Wolf of the Whitney Museum, discusses the nude studies produced by Penn throughout his six-decade career. 27 images are reproduced in stunning tritone in this important new monograph.
