Horst P. Horst was one of the most creative and prolific fashion photographers of the twentieth century. His iconic  photographs graced the pages of Vogue, Vanity Fair, & House and Garden. He is best remembered for the spare elegance and refined glamor of his fashion work, which produced icons of the genre, and also for his nudes, flower studies, and pictures of homes and gardens. His style and his exquisite compositional sense, prompted an early admirer, Janet Flanner, to characterize his work as “a linear romance.” His work influenced many younger photographers, including Robert Mapplethorpe, Bruce Weber, and Herb Ritts.
