Irving Penn: Paintings
Sep 13-Oct 13
Encompassing approximately 30 works drawn from the collection of The Irving Penn Foundation, the exhibition will showcase Penn's mixed-media paintings from the late 1980s through the early 2000s, highlighting the artist's experimentation with materials, form, and color. Drawing inspiration from leading 20th century figures such as Henri Matisse, Giorgio Morandi, and Fernand Leger, Penn's textured, often verging on abstract, paintings deviate from the striking and smooth style of his photographs yet share in similar techniques and bold character.
