Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty features work from all stages of Penn’s career—street scenes from the late 1930s, photographs of the American South from the early 1940s, celebrity portraits, fashion photographs, still lifes and more private studio images. “Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty,” the first retrospective of Penn’s work in nearly 20 years, was organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum and curated by Merry Foresta, the museum's first Curator of Photography.
