Irving Penn's nude portraits of a voluptuous dancer named Alexandra Beller; accompanies exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Maison Europeenne de la Photographie; Irving Penn has achieved international acclaim for his celebrity portraits and fashion photographs. However, in his treatment of the nude - a subject he has approached comparatively few times in his working life - Penn might be described as somewhat subversive. In 1949 and 1950 he created the series Earthly Bodies; by choosing to depict fleshy, Rubenesque models he challenged the conventional idea of physical beauty. In the late 1990s Penn returned to the nude, producing remarkable portraits of a voluptuous dancer named Alexandra Beller. These images resonate not only with a wonderful feeling of freshness but with a breathtaking intimacy. Designed by Penn, Dancer accompanies an exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, travelling to The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Maison Europeenne de la Photographie.
