This major retrospective of the photographs of Irving Penn will mark the centennial of the artist’s birth, and will be the most comprehensive exhibition of the artist to-date. Over the course of his nearly 70-year career, Penn mastered a pared-down aesthetic of studio photography that is distinguished for its meticulous attention to composition, nuance, and detail.
This exhibition is also on view at the Grand Palais, Paris (September 2017–January 2018). It will subsequently travel to Berlin and Sao Paulo, Brazil.
