Synopsis: Limited edition hardback book with dust jacket titled PORTRAIT THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF GEORGE PLATT LYNES 1927-1955.
From Library Journal:
After the publication of George Platt Lynes: Photographs from the Kinsey Institute (LJ 11/1/93) and a touring show of Lynes's photography in 1994, this once-forgotten American photographer seems to be regaining recognition. Particularly with this volume, the artist proves deserving of rediscovery. While Portraits does not carry the insightful essay or range of photographs included in the Kinsey collection's book, it does highlight the photgrapher's very best work, reproduced as lavish, full-page, sheet-fed gravures. With subjects including Paul Cadmus, Gertrude Stein, and Igor Stravinsky, the photos show the full range of Lynes's stylistic pallette, indicating the influence of surrealism, his fashion- and dance-photography innovations, and his experiments with the nude form. A worthy addition to larger photography collections.

Book Description Twin Palms Publishers, United States, 1994. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Before his death in 1955, George Platt Lynes began editing his work for a planned book of portraits. The book never transpired, and Lynes bitterly complained to friends about how unimaginative publishers were. Portraits 1927-1955 presents an impressive body of his oeuvre -- from early work in Paris to his final New York City sittings. Tennessee Williams, Colette, Andre Gide, Gertrude Stein, Edith Sitwell, W. H. Auden, Paul Cadmus, Igor Stravinsky, E. M. Forster, William Inge, Burt Lancaster, and T. S. Eliot are among those included. Many rarely seen portraits, including several revealing self-portraits, are reproduced here for the first time in large-format sheet-fed gravures.
