  • Catalogue Essay

    Georgia-born and New York-educated novelist Carson McCullers (1917-1967) was widely regarded for her Southern Gothic writing style, as illustrated in her eight books. Among them were the acclaimed The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and Reflections in a Golden Eye, both of which were later adapted to film, the latter starring Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor.

  • Artist Biography

    Irving Penn

    American • 1917 - 2009

    Arresting portraits, exquisite flowers, luscious food and glamorous models populate Irving Penn's meticulously rendered, masterful prints. Penn employed the elegant simplicity of a gray or white backdrop to pose his subjects, be it a model in the latest Parisian fashion, a famous subject or veiled women in Morocco.

    Irving Penn's distinct aesthetic transformed twentieth-century elegance and style, with each brilliant composition beautifully articulating his subjects. Working across several photographic mediums, Penn was a master printmaker. Regardless of the subject, each and every piece is rendered with supreme beauty.
