Horst P. Horst: Platinum

29 November 2006 - 15 January 2007

Hamiltons presented Platinum, an exhibition of works by Horst P. Horst.  The show focused solely on Horst’s exquisitely crafted and evocative platinum prints featuring images such as White Sleeve 1936Dali Costumes 1939 and Mainbocher Corset 1939.  Also included in this show were some of the most rare examples of Horst’s works in platinum, the platinum on linen prints.  


It was nearing a decade since Hamiltons presented a Horst show and this was surely the most fitting tribute to his centenary year. A cloth-bound limited edition slip cased book was published to commemorate the show and was available throughout the exhibition.
