About this Item: New York. Alfred A. Knopf., 1984. 396, (1) pages. With a lot of photographs, partially in colour. Black original cloth binding and an illustrated dustjacket. (Dustjacket used). 30x25 cm * The work and the world of a great photographer of fashion and society (Birthname: Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann). Horst P. Horst (* 14. August 1906 in Weißenfels als Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann; 19. November 1999 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, USA) war ein amerikanischer Fotograf deutscher Herkunft. Er wurde durch seine Fotos für die Modezeitschrift Vogue und für seine Porträts berühmter Zeitgenossen bekannt. Er wird zu den bedeutenden Modefotografen des 20. Jahrhunderts gezählt. Horst wurde als Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann, zweiter Sohn des Kaufmanns Max Bohrmann und seiner Ehefrau Klara (geb. Schönbrodt) geboren. Wegen einer leichten Tuberkulose verbrachte er in den frühen 1920er Jahren ein Jahr in einem Schweizer Sanatorium. Nach einem abgebrochenen Studium der Sinologie in Frankfurt am Main arbeitete er als Angestellter in einer Import/Exportfirma. Ende der 1920er Jahre studierte er Architektur an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Hamburg. 1930 setzte er seine Studien in Paris bei dem Architekten Le Corbusier fort. Er lernte den Cheffotografen der französischen Vogue George Hoyningen-Huene (19001968) kennen, dessen Liebhaber und häufiges Modell er für einige Jahre wurde und durch den er zur Fotografie kam. Bereits im gleichen Jahr 1931 erschien in der französischen Vogue eine ganzseitige Anzeige, für die er ein Modell in schwarzem Samt fotografierte. Bei einem Besuch mit Hoyningen-Huene in London lernte er den Fotografen Cecil Beaton kennen, der ihn bat, für die britische Ausgabe der Vogue zu arbeiten. Seinen Durchbruch als Fotograf schaffte er mit dem Erscheinen der ersten britischen Vogue-Ausgabe am 30. März 1932, für die er ein ganzseitiges Porträt der Tochter von James Hamet Dunn, einem Kunstmäzen und Förderer des Surrealismus, fotografierte. Für dieses Modemagazin war er in folgenden Jahren in den wichtigsten damalige Modezentren (Paris, London, New York) tätig. 1935 siedelte er, gleichzeitig mit Hoyningen-Huene, in die Vereinigten Staaten über, war von 1942 bis 1945 im Zweiten Weltkrieg Sergeant der US-Armee und erwarb die amerikanische Staatsbürgerschaft. Gleichzeitig nahm er den Namen Horst P. Horst an. 1947 bezog Horst sein Haus in Oyster Bay auf Long Island. 1938 lernte er den britischen Diplomaten Valentine Lawford (19111991) kennen, mit dem er bis zu dessen Lebensende zusammen lebte und der sein Biograf wurde. Das Paar adoptierte einen Sohn, Richard J. Horst. 1977 war er an der von Manfred Schneckenburger organisierten documenta 6 in Kassel beteiligt. Er inszenierte und fotografierte viele Prominente wie Yves Saint Laurent, Gloria Vanderbilt sowie den Herzog von Windsor. Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 2000. Seller Inventory # 109509

About this Item: New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1984. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 400 pages. Published in 1984. Massive Biography-Cum-Monograph. The single most important book on the photographic art of Horst. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Horst and Susan Eisenman: Oversize-volume format. Gray cloth boards with metallic-silver titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Horst. Text by Valentine Lawford. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents "Horst: His Work And His World". Which are, in his case, inseparable and mutually beneficial. Here are the photographer's finest and most representative work over a lifetime of indefatigable work, immense success, and international fame, as told by his close friend, the eminent writer Valentine Lawford. The most brilliant disciple of Hoyningen-Huene, himself the single most important and influential lifestyle and fashion photographer of the 20th century, Horst quickly became world-famous as the man who created, refined, and perfected the Vogue Look. Horst was a restless photographer who tried his hand at everything: Fashion, still life, male and female nudes, portrait, travel, lifestyle, even landscape and architecture. Among the portraits he took, the list is staggering, and owes in part to the fact that he was himself a very handsome man of the world: Coco Chanel, Lisa Fonssagrives, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Ginger Rogers, Luchino Visconti, Barbara Hutton, Noel Coward, Henri Cartier-Bresson (a rare and lovely portrait of the reclusive photographer), Salvador Dali, Gertrude Stein, Jose Clemente Orozco, Jean Cocteau, Jean Marais, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Princess Lee Radziwill (a stunning duo portrait of the legendary sisters), Paloma Picasso, Brooke Shields, Robert Wilson, Truman Capote, Tom Wolfe, Duran Duran, Bianca Jagger, Andy Warhol, Diana Vreeland, Bruce Weber, Karl Lagerfeld, Calvin Klein, and Yves Saint Laurent, among others: A remarkable confluence of the leading figures in the arts, literature, fashion, photography, high society, and celebrity culture. Horst had few rivals among great photographers of the nude, and he is believed to have taken the only full-frontal nude of Steve McQueen, the Hollywood sex symbol/star, that the latter (and now his estate) have never allowed to be published. An absolute "must-have" title for Horst collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated, and inscribed in black ink-pen on the half-title page by the photographer and author: "For Anthony Buonfiglio, Horst Valentine Lawford 1988". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is an accomplished photographer in his own right. Horst and Lawford signed an unspecified number of presentation copies (such as this) to recipients they knew personally. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and despite its imperfection (price-clipped and wear on DJ) is still in fine condition: Every single internal page is clean, crisp, and bright. The boards are sharp, no bumping at all. It is priced accordingly. Please note: Copies available online command as much as $550. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 229 plates. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER HORST TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0394521714. Signed by Author.
