5.0 out of 5 stars Lillian Bassman: Women, 18 Jun 2011
This review is from: Lillian Bassman: Women (Hardcover)
Lillian Bassman's photographs are a 'one-off' in her unique, personal style and beautiful evocation of not only the sophisticated women and their dresses of New York/Paris of the 50's and 60's but also of this iconic period in the history of two of the world's greatest cities. Many of the images are infused with a softness of form and quasi-abstract background, this renders them with her very personal and beautiful vision; however, they are timeless and of universal appeal. This is great work, up there with the very best of today alongside Nick Night, Paolo Roversi and others, but non-the-less very, very Lillian Bassman! See examples provided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly gorgeous, 30 Mar 2010

This review is from: Lillian Bassman: Women (Hardcover)
Lillian Bassmann is in a class of her own. These are not just fashion shots, they are fabulous artistic creations, some so impressionistic that they are almost abstract. They are full glamour and mystery, sometimes only hinting at the details of the clothes being modelled. I can't think of any other photographer who has done anything similar - this is an absolute must-have, even if (like me) you have little interest in fashion!

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely stunning, 15 Feb 2010
This review is from: Lillian Bassman: Women (Hardcover)
I gave this to my girlfriend for Christmas and she absolutely loved it. This book is beautifully produced and and real treat for anybody into interesting images or historic fashion photography.

I can't believe Lillian Bassman isn't more of a household name since so many of her photographs are such ethereal timeless classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lillian Bassman - Women., 26 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lillian Bassman: Women (Hardcover)
This is a high quality 26cm x 34cm book with around 200 full (single) page photographs, no borders. Wall to wall photographs. This is the missing link between art and photography. Bassman actuall painted her large format negatives to achieve this unique style, but there's more going on to get these prints... still trying to work out what it is. The photographs are on every page so you might want to buy two copies, because you'll want every single shot up on your wall.
