Catalogue for a retrospective exhibition of Horst's work, the first to be held in Germany, his native land. The touring exhibition was held in Munich, Bremen, Frankfurt, Zurich and Hamburg. Valentine Lawford, Horst's life-long partner, provided the introductory essay which gives a succinct biography of the photographer's life. There are several of Horst's society portraits and still-lifes included in the exhibition, but it is particularly strong on his fashion photographs. There is a wide-range of Vogue images from the 30s to the 80s, including some in colour.
