Irving Penn, exhibition

From Thursday, September 21 2017 to Monday, January 29 2018

The master Penn.

2017 is the centenary of the birth of Irving Penn, one of the greatest photographers of the 20thth century. In partnership with the Metropolitan Museum of New York, the Grand Palais is paying homage to this talented artist, famous for his photographs of famous people like Pablo Picasso, Yves Saint Laurent, Audrey Hepburn, and even Alfred Hitchcock... His work is characterised by an elegant simplicity and a remarkable rigour, from the studio to the printing which Penn took great care over. Remaining faithful to studio photography, he created, in each portrait, a real intimacy with his subject, which was his signature.
