This book, published in conjunction with and exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, is the first comprehensive retrospective of Penn's work. The essay by John Szarkowski follows a brilliant career, from its art-school beginnings to the provocative still lives of recent years, photographs of cigarette butts and street detritus-works if eloquence and classical rectitude, made from the least consequential of subject matter. 216 pp.; 156 illus. Published in 1984 and edited by John Szarkowski, this rare book from MoMA Publications is available in extremely limited quantities. Each book from this special selection has been stored for decades in MoMA’s warehouse. MoMA’s award-winning publications program has been an integral part of the Museum’s mission since its founding in 1929. These exhibition- and collection-related titles are renowned for their high production values.
