From unpublished memoirs and other sources, Ewing (Style and Motion, etc.) offers a comprehensive picture biography of Geoge Hoyningen-Huene, who was born into Russia's aristocracy and in the Paris of the '20s and '30s became a quintessential sophisticate among fashion magazine photographers. For Vogue, Vanity Fair and Harper's Bazaar he provided location and studio portraits of models, designers, film stars, authors, poets and society's darlings. Influenced by Man Ray, Baron de Meyer and Edward Steichen, Hoyningen-Huene set a standard of elegance in a genre later taken further by Horst, Penn and Avedon. In this volume's richly reproduced portraitsamong them Coco Chanel, Cocteau, Chaplin, Stravinsky, the Windsors, Lifar, Dolores Del Rio and Garboartist and subject combine superlatively in what came to be known as glamour.

Hoyningen-Huene, called Huene, was one of fashion's most elite photographers. Born into an aristocratic family in Russia in 1900, Huene was well educated. Having fled the Revolution, he began a career in illustration in Paris that led into fashion photography. His work for Paris Vogue and Harper's Bazaar recalled his early passion for what Ewing calls "the cult of the classical." With help from Huene's memoirs and friends, Ewing brings the man and his lesser known portraits, documentary images, and Hollywood work into focus, and discusses Huene's artistic milieu and trends in both fashion and photography. This luxurious book with over 200 duotone images and 11 color plates is full of the glamour that characterized the artist's life and work.Ann Copeland, Drew Univ . Lib., Madison, N.J.
