Yousuf Karsh and Edward Steichen

Yousuf Karsh and Edward Steichen: The Art of the Celebrity Portrait
OTTAWA  •  The National Gallery of Canada  •  Ongoing
This exhibition of 35 prints from the collection shows the remarkable skills of two of the twentieth century’s greatest portrait photographers. A relationship was established between the two photographers in 1936 when Yousuf Karsh paid his first visit to Edward Steichen’s New York studio. Working with a clientele composed of individuals celebrated for their power, wealth, or talent both Steichen and Karsh displayed a remarkable ability to engage with their sitters on equal terms and to capture their characters without compromising their standards of artistic integrity or standards of formal excellence.
