The catalogue for an exhibition held at the National Portrait Gallery in London in 2001, and then the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The exhibition focussed on Horst's portraits,rather than his fashion photography, and the curators strived to include previously unseen and unpublished work, making this an important catalogue. From the library of theatre designer David Collis, with his dated signature in pencil to half-title.
