Dallas Museum of Art presents Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty opening day
Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty, organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, is the first retrospective of Penn’s work in nearly 20 years. The exhibition presents over 140 photographs including iconic images from his oeuvre as well as previously unseen or never exhibited photographs.
Irving Penn (1917–2009) is one of the best-known American photographers of the 20th century. In a career that spanned almost 70 years, Penn worked on professional and artistic projects across multiple genres. He was a master of both black-and-white and color photography, and he was key to the revival of platinum printing in the 1960s and 1970s.
The exhibition will be on display April 15-August 14.
