Creating photographic masterpieces of the post-war’s heady fashion excess, Henry Clarke’s (1918-1961) work for American, British and French Vogue spanned three decades. His work was so highly regarded that his American editor often assigned the unusual distinction of shooting a 24-page spread of an exotic location for a single issue.

Model Susan Murray poses for Henry Clarke on an empty beach in this photograph, which appeared in the June 1, 1966, Vogue. She wears a long-sleeve, full-skirted striped silk evening dress by Tiziani. The juxtaposition of nature, in the form of the sand, and civilization, represented by the elaborate gown, lends this piece a feeling of high drama.

The stretched canvas print is the result of sophisticated digital printing technology in which the image is printed directly onto an artist-grade, 100% cotton canvas. The canvas is then expertly stretched around 1.5" wooden bars and carefully finished with hand-painted edges. An acrylic coating protects the stunning giclée print from dust, moisture and fading.
