Glamour & Style: Portrait Photography from the Golden Age of Cinema - Cheekwood
x icon Close

This exhibition centers on the work of George Hurrell (1904-1992), whose pioneering approach to photography became synonymous with the glamour portraits of Hollywood movie stars of the 1930s and 1940s. It also features the fashion photography of Louise Dahl-Wolfe (1895-1989) and the documentative yet dramatic imagery of Barbara Morgan (1900-1992) and W. Eugene Smith (1918-1978), whose works likewise emphasize the sophisticated elegance of the period now referred to as the Golden Age of Cinema.

George Hurrell (American, 1904-1992), Gene Tierney, 1945. Gelatin silver print. Gift of Dr. Farel A. Rosenberg. 1983.18.2
