About

William Klein Bikini, Moscow Exhibition Poster: Galerie Zabriskie, Paris, 1981 A chic, elegant, rare vintage William Klein exhibit poster defined by Klein's famed 'Bikini, Moscow' (1959). Printed on fine, heavy-weight paper; excellent color tones and overall quality; looks fantastic framed. Offset lithograph on thick wove paper 1st edition, 1st printing 1981. 21 x 30 inches Minor edge wear on lower-right and some very light handling marks; all else in very good condition. Work has been stored flat in archival setting for many years. William Klein is an American artist known for his one of a kind style of abstract photography depicting city scenes. Although similar in subject matter to other street photographers such as Diane Arbus and Saul Leiter, as well as fashion photographers Irving Penn and Richard Avedon, Klein’s images break from established modes. Born on April 19, 1928 in New York, Klein studied painting and worked briefly as Fernand Léger’s assistant in Paris, but never received formal training in photography. His fashion work has been featured prominently in Vogue magazine, and has also been the subject of several iconic photo books, including Life is Good and Good for You In New York (1957) and Tokyo (1964). Klein's works are held in the collections of MoMa New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, and the Art Institute of Chicago, among others.
