Exhibition Catalogue

This indispensable book features one
of the largest selections of Penn's photographs ever compiled—nearly
300 in all—famous and beloved images
as well as works that have never been published.


A Note on
Print Types

Irving Penn’s photographic work can be divided between gelatin silver prints, platinum-palladium prints, and color prints of various types. Some images exist in all three, as is the case with Still Life with Food.


New Scholarship

The Irving Penn Foundation is pleased to announce the publication of the most rigorous study of platinum and palladium photographs to date, resulting from four years of inter-institutional, interdisciplinary research led and organized by the National Gallery of Art.
