Marilyn Monroe, Igor Stravinsky, Pablo Picasso and John F. Kennedy: just a few of the innumerable celebrities who sat for American photographer Arnold Newman (1918-2006). One of the most influential portrait photographers of the 20th century, Newman is recognized as the father of environmental portraiture. He thought a simple portrait photograph was inadequate: to suggest life and character, the picture also needed to show the subject's personal surroundings. In this major retrospective of Newman's work (the first since his death in 2006), the Hague Museum of Photography presents 150 original vintage prints brought over especially from the United States. Arnold Newman -- Masterclass includes both his most renowned portraits and his forgotten still lifes, architectural studies and early street photography.
