Richard Avedon portraits continue to serve as the iconic views that come to represent their sitters. Using a large format 8×10 inch camera, his contact prints are remarkable in how the subtle details are firmly rendered. Seen against white backgrounds, his subjects are laid bare so the strength of their character looms large.
PROVENANCE: Purchased by the current owner in the late 1970’s.
