Irving Penn at The MET

“A crystalline exhibition in which nearly every gallery exhales its own delicious breeze.” – The New York Times

A picture is worth more than a thousand words, and below is a sampling that proves that to be true.  The Irving Penn exhibition currently at The MET Fifth Avenue is a visual feast. “Centennial” marks the hundredth anniversary of Penn’s birth.

Featuring more than two-hundred photographs by Penn, from the iconic to the rare; “fashion studies of Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn, the artist’s wife; exquisite still lifes; Quechua children in Cuzco, Peru; portraits of urban laborers; female nudes; tribesmen in New Guinea; and color flower studies. The artist’s beloved portraits of cultural figures from Truman Capote, Picasso, and Colette to Ingmar Bergman and Issey Miyake.”
