Irving Penn

Woman in Moroccan Palace


There are days I just feel so gloriously lucky, like today..... 
At any time I want, I can take a trip to Manhattan and see some of the best Art in the world. 
This is a photograph Irving Penn took of his wife Lisa Fonssagrives (Swedish) in 1951.
Girls, she was 40 years when this picture was taken... 
It is for sale at the Hasted Hunt Kraeutler Gallery in Chelsea!


  1. What a fantastic photo! Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. Your blogs is so nice. Beautiful picture. Inspiring...(the way she look). Ans YES you are really lucky!: D

  3. Gorgeous photo. I understand from later media this picture (or at least one picture of his wife, perhaps I shouldn't be so quick to assume it is this one) went for $54,000.00.
