IRVING PENN. John Szarkowski.


New York: Museum of Modern Art, 1984. First edition. Hardcover. Large 4to. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at MOMA, this is the first comprehensive retrospective of Penn's work. The essay by Szarkowski follows a brilliant career, from its art-school beginnings to the provocative still lifes of recent years, photographs of cigarette butts and street detritus-works of eloquence and classical rectitude, made from the least consequential of subject matter. 216 pages, 156 plates (21 in color), with 35 reference illustrations (7 in color). A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Item #ESB10081

Price: $150.00
