Horst P. Horst: Horst Vintage
Sep 25, 2014 — Nov 24, 2014
As representatives of Horst P. Horst since the 1980’s Hamiltons is proud to present an exhibition of his vintage prints from the thirties to fifties; showcasing 35 rare images, each from the Horst Estate and shot for Condé Nast, Vogue, in Paris, New York and London.
Widely recognised as one of the pre-eminent fashion and portrait photographers of the 20th century, Horst’s career spanned sixty years and his work ranks alongside Richard Avedon and Irving Penn. Horst Vintage coincides with his scholarly retrospective at The Victoria & Albert Museum: Horst Photographer of Style; and focuses on his fashion and figurative images for Vogue Magazine. Often working closely with art director Alexander Liberman, Horst’s archive is large and diverse, spanning the opulent salons of post-war Paris and ranging from extravagant studio set ups to esteemed collaborations with fellow luminaries such as Salvador Dali, Elsa Schiaparelli and Coco Chanel, amongst others. By the mid 1930’s his work was deemed revolutionary not only in terms of photography but design, advertising, fashion and society.
