The word legendary gets thrown around an awful lot, but when it comes to the 20th-century fashion photographer , it’s an apt description. Starting in the 1930s, when color photography was still in its infancy, Horst produced some of the most illustrious works to ever grace the pages of any magazine, mainly working for Vogue over the course of his six-decade career, where he helped to elevate fashion photography into the art form it would soon become.
Now the gallery in lower Manhattan, in conjunction with the in Milan, is presenting “,” on view through June 22, which brings together more than two dozen timeless photographs from the Horst estate. Every piece in the show, many of them large-format prints, is also for sale: the 1979 image shown above, of the esteemed Harper’s Bazaar editor and Vogue editor in chief Diana Vreeland, can be yours for $5,825. It’s just one reason among many to get yourself to this gallery before this exhibition is gone for good—or before the photos themselves are snatched up by eager buyers.
