Around That Time, Horst at Home in Vogue, a forthcoming monograph from Abrams, is a tribute to the landmark Vogue’s Book of Houses, Gardens, People (1968), which chronicled important moments in Vogue’s history and in the international high society at large. From his renown as a leading fashion photographer of his time and the support of legendary Vogue Editor Diana Vreeland, Horst P. Horst developed an intense interest in seeing the world’s great homes, whose owners included Yves Saint Laurent, Doris Duke, Emilio Pucci, Cy Twombly, and Marella Agnelli, among other royalty, celebrities and diplomats. The photographs captured by Horst P. Horst suspend the essence of society, politics, and art in the mid20th century and represent a true “who’s who” of the day.
A selection of limited edition prints from the monograph will be made for SOCO Gallery, curated by the Horst P. Horst Estate and Ivan Shaw. These rare, full color photographs will introduce this work to a new generation of design, decorating, and visual art professionals, academics, and enthusiasts.
