Since September 2017 Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac represents The Irving Penn Foundation in France in collaboration with Pace/MacGill Gallery, New York: “The Flavour of France” is the first exhibition of American photographer Irving Penn (1917-2009) at the gallery. Titled after an essay written by Irving Penn in 1960 the exhibition focuses on three different bodies of work: Nudes, Small Trades and Artist Portraits. Dating from the period 1947–1950, each reflects in its own way the close relationship Irving Penn maintained with France throughout his life, by frequent visits and by their idealised scent.
