Horst P. Horst(1906-1999), Photographer
Sitter in 1 portrait
Artist of 20 portraits
In the history of twentieth-century fashion and portrait photography, Horst's contribution figures as one of the most artistically significant and longest-lasting, spanning the sixty years between 1931 and 1991. During this period, his name became legendary as a one-word photographic byline, and his photographs came to be seen as synonymous with the creation of images of elegance, style and rarefied glamour. Horst was born in Germany. He studied architecture in Hamburg, and with Le Corbusier in Paris. As a photographer he was the protégé of Hoyningen-Huene in the Vogue studios in Paris and he continued to work for the magazine for the next six decades.
