  • Catalogue Essay

    The selection of Works from an Important Private European Collection, (lots 124-138), celebrates icons of beauty from the 20th century and the master photographers who captured their timelessness. From Terry O’Neill’s windblown Brigitte Bardot and Eve Arnold’s enigmatic Marilyn Monroe to Herb Ritts’ seductive Cindy Crawford and Irving Penn’s statuesque Gisele, these subjects defined the cultural zeitgeists of their respective eras. Each image commands its own space with a strong impression of the elegant, playful, peaceful, or at times somber subject. Phillips is pleased to present these photographs from this exceptional Private European Collection that also featured works in the Phillips 20th Century & Contemporary Art Sale earlier this year in London.
