The Metropolitan Museum of Art to Present Irving Penn Centennial Exhibition in 2017

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has announced it will present a major retrospective exhibition of the photographs of Irving Penn, opening in April 2017, to mark the centennial of the artist’s birth. This landmark retrospective will travel internationally, opening at the Met and then beginning it's journey at the Grand Palais in Paris. The Irving Penn Foundation will make a monumental gift to the Met of more than 150 photographs by Penn, representing every period of the great American artist’s dynamic 70-year career with the camera. These works, selected by the Metropolitan Museum from the Foundation's archive, will be central to the exhibition.
