About this title


In recognition of the career and award-winning work of Arnold Newman, the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institute, will be exhibiting 100 of his portraits of individuals who have made a notable contribution to American culture and society. Included in the selection are classic portraits as varied as Igor Stravinsky, Frank Lloyd Wright, Robert Oppenheimer, Gypsy Rose Lee, Eugene O'Neill, J.F. Kennedy and Leonard Bernstein. Newman's innovative portraits were a radical step away from the traditional portraiture of the 1940s - capturing the subject in a setting reflective of his or her vocation and personal creativity. It is just this independent spirit that established him as a ground-breaking artist and made his work the subject of eight books and exhibitions the world over.

From Library Journal:

The publication of this collection of more than 100 black-and-white photo portraits by Newman coincides with a National Portrait Gallery exhibit. Nearly 50 years ago, Newman was a pioneer of the portrait style that places its subjects in their working environment. This book could serve as a visual tool for researchers, as it captures a who's who of significant Americans from the mid- to late 20th century. Introductory essays by Alan Fern and Arnold Newman gracefully explain the circumstances surrounding many of the photographs in this showcase of Newman's mastery of his medium and, during the shoot, of his subjects. A recent interview with Newman on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" (April 14, 1992) confirmed this great portrait photographer's gentle, insightful approach, beautifully captured in the images and words in this book. Recommended for most collections.
