Irving Penn: Dancer.

Photographs by Irving Penn. Text by Anne Wilkes Tucker.
Nazraeli Press, Tucson, 2002. Unpaged, 27 duotone illustrations, 11x12".

In 1999, at the age of 82, Irving Penn photographed dancer Alexandra Beller, posing and dancing nude, over the course of four sessions in his studio. The work is introduced by Anne Wilkes Tucker of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston who ably discusses the style and content of each of the four sessions. Furthermore, in a highly illuminating, albeit brief essay, Sylvia Wolf of the Whitney Museum, discusses the nude studies produced by Penn throughout his six-decade career. 27 images are reproduced in stunning tritone in this important new monograph.
