Overview

Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty

In a career that spanned seven decades, iconic American photographer Irving Penn (1917–2009) created an enormous body of work. This retrospective featured the full range of his accomplishment in more than 140 photographs including early social realist images, glamorous fashion photographs, insightful portraits, still lifes, nudes, and his late work with found objects. 

Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty provided a compelling overview of the work of one of the 20th century’s greats, while simultaneously reflecting on some of the century’s most enthralling personalities and exploring its social and cultural contrasts. Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty was organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum with generous support from ART MENTOR FOUNDATION LUCERNE, Sakurako and William Fisher, The William R. Kenan Jr. Endowment Fund, The Lauder Foundation – Leonard and Judy Lauder Fund, Edward Lenkin and Roselin Atzwanger, The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, Margery and Edgar Masinter, The Margery and Edgar Masinter Exhibitions Fund, the James F. Petersen Charitable Fund in honor of Tania and Tom Evans, The Bernie Stadiem Endowment Fund, and the Trellis Fund. The C.F. Foundation in Atlanta supports the museum’s traveling exhibition program, Treasures to Go.
