Abstract:

"Beautiful, intelligent and cultured, Lisa Fonssagrives was the embodiment of elegance, refinement and chic. The most sought after model in the history of fashion photography, she inspired some of the most memorable images of our time, from Blumenfeld's woman hanging perilously from the Eiffel Tower to Penn's mermaid in a Rochas dress." "Lisa Fonssagrives was a muse, a chameleon who collaborated with the finest fashion photographers of more than three decades: Hoyningen-Huene, Man Ray, Horst, Blumenfeld, Platt Lynes, Richard Avedon and her husband, Irving Penn, to make some of the classic masterpieces of the genre." "David Seidner has brought together not only some of the most celebrated photographs of our times, but also an undiscovered collection of photographs, many rare, which belonged to Lisa Fonssagrives herself. With a biographical essay by the renowned photo-historian Martin Harrison, Lisa Fonssagrives provides a glorious and essential introduction to the century's Golden Age of fashion photography through the portrait of its most compelling and famous icon."--Jacket.
