Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery announces an exhibition of Philippe Halsman's photographs of Salvador Dali - the painter, writer, theater designer, filmmaker, and theorist whose 2004 centennial is being celebrated in cities around the world. These images are the result of a creative and often outrageous collaboration between the world-renowned photographer and artist that lasted for over thirty years. From the 1940's to the 1970's, Halsman was one of America's preeminent portrait photographers, and the photographer of choice for a wide range of celebrities and public figures. Halsman holds the record for the most covers of LIFE magazine - 101 in all - and many of his portraits have become the definitive image of some of the 20th century's most significant figures such as Louis Armstrong, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, and Marilyn Monroe.
