'We are delighted to partner with the National Portrait Gallery to bring the works of one of the most influential photographers to the United Kingdom. We are especially pleased to facilitate the opportunity for audiences to encounter some of Irving Penn's portraits for the first time, and to consider the important legacy he has left.
We believe that Penn's photographs will strike a chord with many, since they combine the accessibility of photography with the universal appeal of the human face, and we hope that audiences will enjoy this unique exhibition.Bank of America Merrill Lynch is a major supporter of arts and culture. Our unique, multi-tiered programme supports neighbourhoods around the world, contributing to a climate where innovation flourishes, economies grow, and people, businesses and communities thrive.'
