Book Description 
  
Sophisticated, chic, decadent, brilliant-these words describe both the life and the art of Horst P. Horst. The premier fashion photographer, Horst delved into the worlds of style and celebrity with equal zeal, and his impact on those worlds will be felt for decades to come. Horst's taste for glamour and elegance, simplicity and perfection are everywhere in evidence in this marvelous array of photos which features renowned fashion spreads, as well as landscapes, flowers, and nudes. But the focus of this volume is the celebrity portrait, a medium in which Horst excelled, as he relished the experience of turning his many friends into subjects, and his subjects into friends. Pablo Picasso, Marlene Dietrich, Coco Chanel, Salvador Dalí, Katherine Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy, Steve McQueen, Mick Jagger, and Andy Warhol are among some of the unforgettable faces made immortal by Horst's unerring eye. His best photographs, which exhibit both his love for the ancient Greek ideal and his interest in Surrealism, are considered icons of photographic history.
