From the publisher:

"Richard Avedon (1923 - 2004) captured the creative genius of our time with dazzling insight and incomparable style. Spanning the artist’s entire career, from the late 1940s through his most recent work, Richard Avedon Portraits offers a superb selection of his photographic portraits. With uncompromising directness, Avedon portrayed his subjects against a white background, with no extraneous details to distract from the essential specificity of face, gaze, dress, and gesture. This challenging innovation, coupled with the artist’s intense interest in his subjects and mastery of his craft, resulted in mesmerizing portraits—among them Truman Capote, Willem de Kooning, Samuel Beckett, Francis Bacon, and Marilyn Monroe, as well as the uncelebrated Americans of his project, In the American West that rival the greatest works in the portrait tradition. Richard Avedon Portraits is published to accompany a major exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Slipcased, the book opens into an accordion of images, with essays on the reverse from Philippe de Montebello, Maria Morris Hambourg and Mia Fineman, and Avedon."
