- Iconic fashion photographers of the 20th century from the archives of American VOGUE
- More than 30 works by the most distinguished photographers of all time
- Rare color photographs by Horst P. Horst, available for the first time as limited editions
BERLIN and NEW YORK, Nov. 4, 2014 /CNW/ - Horst P. Horst, Erwin Blumenfeld and George Hoyningen-Huene: these names are synonymous with iconic moments in the history of photography. Now LUMAS is introducing masterpieces from the archives of American VOGUE with the LUMAS VOGUE Collection. Starting today LUMAS is releasing more than 30 works by the most distinguished photographers of all time - available for the first time as limited editions.
For a long time, Horst P. Horst's black-and-white prints, such as The Mainbocher Corset, have been unavailable on the art market, most available only as vintage prints selling for five-figure sums. Prints of his color photos have been even rarer. It was only when the original transparencies were rediscovered a few years ago that Horst's talent as a colorist was revealed. The LUMAS VOGUE Collection contains limited-edition prints of these rare color photographs, such as the iconic Balance.
In addition to the pieces from the VOGUE Collection, works from the Condé Nast Archive can now be found in the LUMAS Portfolio, including photographs by Edward Steichen, André Kertész, and Arthur Elgort, created for other renowned magazines such as Vanity Fair and Glamour.
About the LUMAS VOGUE Collection and LUMAS Condé Nast Collection
Starting in 1909, publisher Condé Montrose Nast began assembling the photographic avant-garde of the early 20th century for American VOGUE magazine's elaborate photo shoots. In the twenties and thirties, VOGUE established fashion photography as a distinct art form. Now these great moments from the history of fashion photography are united in the LUMAS VOGUE Collection. All of the pieces from the collection can be found in the enclosed catalog and online.
In 34 galleries around the world, LUMAS offers museum-quality art editions. More than 1,400 works by 160 established artists and many promising newcomers deliver a comprehensive look into the contemporary art and design scenes.
