Arnold Newman: Masterclass

Exhibition Website

Apr 21 2016 - Jul 3 2016

Over the course of nearly seven decades, Arnold Newman (1918–2006) created iconographic portraits of some of the most influential innovators, celebrities, and cultural figures of the twentieth century.

The first major exhibition of the photographer's work since his death, Arnold Newman: Masterclass examines the evolution of his singular vision, from the informal portraits, cityscapes, documentary images, and design studies of his early career to the "environmental portraiture" style for which he would become famous. Through more than 200 of his well-known photographs of famous sitters, including JFK, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Marc Chagall, Igor Stravinsky, and Marilyn Monroe, along with manuscripts, correspondence, business records, and magazine tear sheets, Masterclass invites the viewers to explore the life, career, and art of this important and prolific master of the photographic image.
